## 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 26.2 inches into decimeters we have to multiply 26.2 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

26.2 in → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 26.2 in × 0.254 dm

L(dm) = 6.6548 dm

The final result is:

26.2 in → 6.6548 dm

We conclude that 26.2 inches is equivalent to 6.6548 decimeters:

26.2 inches = 6.6548 decimeters
