## 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 118 inches into decimeters we have to multiply 118 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

118 in → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 118 in × 0.254 dm

L(dm) = 29.972 dm

The final result is:

118 in → 29.972 dm

We conclude that 118 inches is equivalent to 29.972 decimeters:

118 inches = 29.972 decimeters
