$$A\ decimeter\ (dm)\ is\ one\ tenth\ of\ a\ meter.\\ The\ diameter\ of\ Earth\ is\ 1.3 \times 10^4 km.\\ What\ is\ the\ diameter\ expressed\ in\ decimeters?$$

$$1.3 × 10^{–5} dm\\ 1.3 × 10^{11} dm\\ \color{blue}1.3 × 10^8 dm\\ 1.3 × 10^7 dm$$

$$The\ diameter\ of\ Earth\ is\ 1.3 \times 10^4\ km\times\frac{10^4dm}{km}=1.3\times10^8\ dm$$
