## 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 79 inches into decimeters we have to multiply 79 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

79 in → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 79 in × 0.254 dm

L(dm) = 20.066 dm

The final result is:

79 in → 20.066 dm

We conclude that 79 inches is equivalent to 20.066 decimeters:

79 inches = 20.066 decimeters
