## 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 14 inches into decimeters we have to multiply 14 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

14 in → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 14 in × 0.254 dm

L(dm) = 3.556 dm

The final result is:

14 in → 3.556 dm

We conclude that 14 inches is equivalent to 3.556 decimeters:

14 inches = 3.556 decimeters
