## 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 170 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 170 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

170 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 170 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 518.16 dm

The final result is:

170 ft → 518.16 dm

We conclude that 170 feet is equivalent to 518.16 decimeters:

170 feet = 518.16 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

Another way is saying that 170 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 0.001929905820596 decimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one hundred seventy feet is approximately five hundred eighteen point one six decimeters:

170 ft ≅ 518.16 dm

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