## 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 180 inches into decimeters we have to multiply 180 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

180 in → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 180 in × 0.254 dm

L(dm) = 45.72 dm

The final result is:

180 in → 45.72 dm

We conclude that 180 inches is equivalent to 45.72 decimeters:
