## 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 12.3 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 12.3 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

12.3 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 12.3 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 37.4904 dm

The final result is:

12.3 ft → 37.4904 dm

We conclude that 12.3 feet is equivalent to 37.4904 decimeters:

12.3 feet = 37.4904 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.026673495081408 × 12.3 feet.

Another way is saying that 12.3 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 0.026673495081408 decimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that twelve point three feet is approximately thirty-seven point four nine decimeters:

12.3 ft ≅ 37.49 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero two seven times twelve point three feet.
