## 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 173 deciliters into liters we have to multiply 173 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

173 dL → V(L)

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

V(L) = 173 dL × 0.1 L

V(L) = 17.3 L

The final result is:

173 dL → 17.3 L

We conclude that 173 deciliters is equivalent to 17.3 liters:

173 deciliters = 17.3 liters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 liter is equal to 0.057803468208092 × 173 deciliters.
