## 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 45 inches into decimeters we have to multiply 45 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

45 in → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 45 in × 0.254 dm

L(dm) = 11.43 dm

The final result is:

45 in → 11.43 dm

We conclude that 45 inches is equivalent to 11.43 decimeters:

45 inches = 11.43 decimeters
