Again, deca is hardly used for anything across the whole of Europe.

1 decimeter = 0.1 meters (1/10 x 1 meter). 1 decameter = 10 meters (10 x 1 meters).

Americans be like wHaTs A dEcAmEtRe XD Niqqa it's literally 10 metres. You just add a prefix on the main unit and you get multiples and submultiples. Here's some of the multiples: Deca = 10 (from greek δέκα, déka, "ten"), Hecto = 100 (from εκατόν, ekatón, "one hundred"), Kilo = 1000 (from χίλιοι, khíloi, one thousand; that's why you write 1K), Mega = 1000000 (1M), Giga = 1 billion (as in GB, gigabyte, that's a billion bytes) and many more after this that are not really that important.
