Feet (ft) to Decimeters (dm) Converter

This length unit converter dynamically calculates the value you enter in feet (ft) and converts it to its equivalent value in decimeters (dm).

How many feet (ft) are in 1 decimeter (dm)? What is the formula for how to convert feet to decimeters (ft to dm)?

1 foot (ft) = 3.048 decimeters (dm)
So we can say that there is 3.048 decimeters in 1 foot.
This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a decimeter unit of measurement is 3.048.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

1 decimeter (dm) = 0.32808398950131 foot (ft)
So we can say that there is 0.32808398950131 foot in 1 decimeter.
This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a decimeter unit of measurement is 0.32808398950131.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in feet to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in decimeters (ft to dm). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

dm = ft ร— 3.048 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

dm = ft รท 0.32808398950131 ย  ย โ†’ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

For example, if you have a length of 25 feet that you want to convert to decimeters, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

dm = 25 ft ร— 3.048 = 76.2 dm
dm = 25 ft รท 0.32808398950131 = 76.2 dm

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 76.2 decimeters.
