    There is 1000 cm^3 in 1 dm^3.
    So to convert dm^3 to cm^3 you multiply by 1000.

    If you want to convert from cm^3 to dm^3 you therefore have to divide by 1000.

    dm3 ----(multiply by 1000)-----> cm3


    cm3 ----(divide by 1000) -----> dm3


    This might help you remember:

    dm3, think of the d in dm3 as divide so to get dm3 you divide.

    I dont know if that makes any sense to you or if it helps, hope it does
