## 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 421 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 421 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

421 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 421 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 1283.208 dm

The final result is:

421 ft → 1283.208 dm

We conclude that 421 feet is equivalent to 1283.208 decimeters:

421 feet = 1283.208 decimeters
