Work Step by Step

First, convert dam to cm: 1dam = 1000cm 1.2dam = 12000cm Second, convert cm to inches by dividing by the value 2.54: 1 in = 2.54 cm $\frac{1}{2.54}$ in = 1 cm $\frac{12000}{2.54} in = 12000cm$ Ans = $\frac{12000}{2.54}$ in = 4,724.4094488189 in $\approx 4724.41$ in (to nearest 2 decimal places)
