## Thinking Mathematically (6th Edition)

$1~m = 10~dm$ We can find how many cubic decimeters are in a cubic meter. $1~m^3 = 1~m \times 1~m \times 1~m$ $1~m^3 = 10~dm \times 10~dm \times 10~dm$ $1~m^3 = 1000~dm^3$ There are 1000 cubic decimeters in a cubic meter. Therefore, a cubic meter is 1000 times greater than a cubic decimeter.
