According to the question, we need to find the relation between 2.62 dekameter(dam) and kilometer(km) Now as per the conversion table of length we know:

\[\begin{array}{*{20}{l}}

{10{\text{ }}millimeter{\text{ }} = {\text{ }}1{\text{ }}centimeter} \\

{10{\text{ }}centimeter{\text{ }} = {\text{ }}1{\text{ }}decimeter} \\

{10{\text{ }}decimeter{\text{ }} = {\text{ }}1{\text{ }}meter} \\

{10{\text{ }}meter{\text{ }} = {\text{ }}1{\text{ }}dekameter} \\

{10{\text{ }}dekameter{\text{ }} = {\text{ }}1{\text{ }}hectometer} \\

{10{\text{ }}hectometer{\text{ }} = {\text{ }}1{\text{ }}kilometer}

\end{array}\]

So, from this table clearly:

\[10{\text{ }}dekameter{\text{ }} = {\text{ }}1{\text{ hecto}}meter\] and \[10{\text{ hecto}}meter{\text{ }} = 1{\text{ kilo}}meter\]

So, \[1dekameter{\text{ }} = {\text{ 0}}{\text{.1 hecto}}meter\], and \[1{\text{ hecto}}meter{\text{ }} = 0.1{\text{ kilo}}meter\]

So, we can say that:

If \[10{\text{ }}dekameter{\text{ }} = {\text{ }}1{\text{ hecto}}meter\]

Then \[1dekameter{\text{ }} = {\text{ 0}}{\text{.1 hecto}}meter\]

If\[10{\text{ hecto}}meter{\text{ }} = 1{\text{ kilo}}meter\] ,

Then \[1{\text{ hecto}}meter{\text{ }} = 0.1{\text{ kilo}}meter\]

That is,

$

1decameter = 0.1 \times 0.1kilometer \\

\Rightarrow 1dam = 0.01km \\

$

So,

\[

\Rightarrow 2.62dam = 2.62 \times 0.01km \\

\Rightarrow 2.62dam = \dfrac{{262}}{{100}} \times \dfrac{1}{{100}}km \\

\Rightarrow 2.62dam = \dfrac{{26}}{{10000}}km \\

\Rightarrow 2.6dam = 0.0262km \\

\]

Therefore, 2.62 decametre will be equal to 0.0262km.

Hence, we will fill the blank with the 0.0262.
