## 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 13.7 inches into decimeters we have to multiply 13.7 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

13.7 in → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 13.7 in × 0.254 dm

L(dm) = 3.4798 dm

The final result is:

13.7 in → 3.4798 dm

We conclude that 13.7 inches is equivalent to 3.4798 decimeters:

13.7 inches = 3.4798 decimeters
