## 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 159 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 159 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

159 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 159 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 484.632 dm

The final result is:

159 ft → 484.632 dm

We conclude that 159 feet is equivalent to 484.632 decimeters:
