## 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 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 12 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 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 12 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 36.576 dm

The final result is:

12 ft → 36.576 dm

We conclude that 12 feet is equivalent to 36.576 decimeters:

12 feet = 36.576 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.027340332458443 × 12 feet.

Another way is saying that 12 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 0.027340332458443 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

12 ft ≅ 36.576 dm

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