## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from deciliters to liters is 0.1, which means that 1 deciliter is equal to 0.1 liters:

1 dL = 0.1 L

To convert 172 deciliters into liters we have to multiply 172 by the conversion factor in order to get the volume amount from deciliters to liters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dL → 0.1 L

172 dL → V_{(L)}

Solve the above proportion to obtain the volume *V* in liters:

V_{(L)} = 172 dL × 0.1 L

V_{(L)} = 17.2 L

The final result is:

172 dL → 17.2 L

We conclude that **172 deciliters is equivalent to 17.2 liters**:

172 deciliters = 17.2 liters

## Alternative conversion
