## 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 15 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 15 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

15 ft → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 15 ft × 3.048 dm

L_{(dm)} = 45.72 dm

The final result is:

15 ft → 45.72 dm

We conclude that **15 feet is equivalent to 45.72 decimeters**:

15 feet = 45.72 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.021872265966754 × 15 feet**.

Another way is saying that *15 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 0.021872265966754 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **fifteen feet is approximately forty-five point seven two decimeters**:

15 ft ≅ 45.72 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero two two times fifteen feet*.
