## 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 2 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 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

2 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 2 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 6.096 dm

The final result is:

2 ft → 6.096 dm

We conclude that 2 feet is equivalent to 6.096 decimeters:

2 feet = 6.096 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.16404199475066 × 2 feet.

Another way is saying that 2 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 0.16404199475066 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

2 ft ≅ 6.096 dm

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