## 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 83.7 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 83.7 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

83.7 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 83.7 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 255.1176 dm

The final result is:

83.7 ft → 255.1176 dm

We conclude that 83.7 feet is equivalent to 255.1176 decimeters:
