## 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 85 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 85 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

85 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 85 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 259.08 dm

The final result is:

85 ft → 259.08 dm

We conclude that 85 feet is equivalent to 259.08 decimeters:

85 feet = 259.08 decimeters
