## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from inches to decimeters is 0.254, which means that 1 inch is equal to 0.254 decimeters:

1 in = 0.254 dm

To convert 10.6 inches into decimeters we have to multiply 10.6 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from inches to decimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 in → 0.254 dm

10.6 in → L_{(dm)}

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length *L* in decimeters:

L_{(dm)} = 10.6 in × 0.254 dm

L_{(dm)} = 2.6924 dm

The final result is:

10.6 in → 2.6924 dm

We conclude that **10.6 inches is equivalent to 2.6924 decimeters**:
