## 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 28.5 inches into decimeters we have to multiply 28.5 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

28.5 in → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 28.5 in × 0.254 dm

L(dm) = 7.239 dm

The final result is:

28.5 in → 7.239 dm

We conclude that 28.5 inches is equivalent to 7.239 decimeters:

28.5 inches = 7.239 decimeters
