## 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 47.4 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 47.4 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

47.4 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 47.4 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 144.4752 dm

The final result is:

47.4 ft → 144.4752 dm

We conclude that 47.4 feet is equivalent to 144.4752 decimeters:

47.4 feet = 144.4752 decimeters
