## 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 57 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 57 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

57 ft → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 57 ft × 3.048 dm

L_{(dm)} = 173.736 dm

The final result is:

57 ft → 173.736 dm

We conclude that **57 feet is equivalent to 173.736 decimeters**:

57 feet = 173.736 decimeters
