## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from decimeters to yards is 0.10936132983377, which means that 1 decimeter is equal to 0.10936132983377 yards:

1 dm = 0.10936132983377 yd

To convert 72 decimeters into yards we have to multiply 72 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from decimeters to yards. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 dm → 0.10936132983377 yd

72 dm → L(yd)

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

L(yd) = 72 dm × 0.10936132983377 yd

L(yd) = 7.8740157480315 yd

The final result is:

72 dm → 7.8740157480315 yd

We conclude that 72 decimeters is equivalent to 7.8740157480315 yards:

72 decimeters = 7.8740157480315 yards

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 yard is equal to 0.127 × 72 decimeters.

Another way is saying that 72 decimeters is equal to 1 ÷ 0.127 yards.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that seventy-two decimeters is approximately seven point eight seven four yards:

72 dm ≅ 7.874 yd

An alternative is also that one yard is approximately zero point one two seven times seventy-two decimeters.
