## 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 16.2 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 16.2 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

16.2 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 16.2 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 49.3776 dm

The final result is:

16.2 ft → 49.3776 dm

We conclude that 16.2 feet is equivalent to 49.3776 decimeters:

16.2 feet = 49.3776 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.020252098117365 × 16.2 feet.

Another way is saying that 16.2 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 0.020252098117365 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

16.2 ft ≅ 49.378 dm

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