## 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 27 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 27 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

27 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 27 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 82.296 dm

The final result is:

27 ft → 82.296 dm

We conclude that 27 feet is equivalent to 82.296 decimeters:

27 feet = 82.296 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

Another way is saying that 27 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 0.012151258870419 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

27 ft ≅ 82.296 dm

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