## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from feet to decimeters is 3.048, which means that 1 foot is equal to 3.048 decimeters:

1 ft = 3.048 dm

To convert 0.5 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 0.5 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from feet to decimeters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 ft → 3.048 dm

0.5 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 0.5 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 1.524 dm

The final result is:

0.5 ft → 1.524 dm

We conclude that 0.5 feet is equivalent to 1.524 decimeters:

0.5 feet = 1.524 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.65616797900262 × 0.5 feet.

Another way is saying that 0.5 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 0.65616797900262 decimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that zero point five feet is approximately one point five two four decimeters:

0.5 ft ≅ 1.524 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point six five six times zero point five feet.
