## 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 16.7 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 16.7 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

16.7 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 16.7 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 50.9016 dm

The final result is:

16.7 ft → 50.9016 dm

We conclude that 16.7 feet is equivalent to 50.9016 decimeters:

16.7 feet = 50.9016 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.01964574787433 × 16.7 feet.

Another way is saying that 16.7 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 0.01964574787433 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

16.7 ft ≅ 50.902 dm

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