## 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 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 38 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 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 38 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 115.824 dm

The final result is:

38 ft → 115.824 dm

We conclude that 38 feet is equivalent to 115.824 decimeters:

38 feet = 115.824 decimeters
