to convert dm3 into m3, divide by 1000
to convert cm3 ito m3, divide by 1000,000
1 dm3 is therefore a cube with sides 1 dm x 1 dm x 1 dm
hence 1 m3 is a cube with sides 1 m x 1 m x 1 m
100 cm = 10 dm = 1 m
1 dm = 1 cm
How many 1x1x1 cm cubes fit inside a 1x1x1 dm cube?
10 along one edge x 10 along the base x 10 up the sides.
Likewise 1000 1x1x1 dm cubes fit a 1x1x1 m cube.
