## 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 38.4 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 38.4 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

38.4 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 38.4 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 117.0432 dm

The final result is:

38.4 ft → 117.0432 dm

We conclude that 38.4 feet is equivalent to 117.0432 decimeters:

38.4 feet = 117.0432 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

Another way is saying that 38.4 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 0.0085438538932633 decimeters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that thirty-eight point four feet is approximately one hundred seventeen point zero four three decimeters:

38.4 ft ≅ 117.043 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero zero nine times thirty-eight point four feet.
