## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from miles to decimeters is 16093.44, which means that 1 mile is equal to 16093.44 decimeters:

1 mi = 16093.44 dm

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

1 mi → 16093.44 dm

72 mi → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 72 mi × 16093.44 dm

L(dm) = 1158727.68 dm

The final result is:

72 mi → 1158727.68 dm

We conclude that 72 miles is equivalent to 1158727.68 decimeters:
