## 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 521 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 521 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

521 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 521 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 1588.008 dm

The final result is:

521 ft → 1588.008 dm

We conclude that 521 feet is equivalent to 1588.008 decimeters:

521 feet = 1588.008 decimeters
