## 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 8 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 8 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

8 ft → L_{(dm)}

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

L_{(dm)} = 8 ft × 3.048 dm

L_{(dm)} = 24.384 dm

The final result is:

8 ft → 24.384 dm

We conclude that **8 feet is equivalent to 24.384 decimeters**:

8 feet = 24.384 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case **1 decimeter is equal to 0.041010498687664 × 8 feet**.

Another way is saying that *8 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 0.041010498687664 decimeters*.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that **eight feet is approximately twenty-four point three eight four decimeters**:

8 ft ≅ 24.384 dm

An alternative is also that *one decimeter is approximately zero point zero four one times eight feet*.
