## 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 9 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 9 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

9 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 9 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 27.432 dm

The final result is:

9 ft → 27.432 dm

We conclude that 9 feet is equivalent to 27.432 decimeters:

9 feet = 27.432 decimeters

## Alternative conversion

We can also convert by utilizing the inverse value of the conversion factor. In this case 1 decimeter is equal to 0.036453776611257 × 9 feet.

Another way is saying that 9 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 0.036453776611257 decimeters.

## Approximate result

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

9 ft ≅ 27.432 dm

An alternative is also that one decimeter is approximately zero point zero three six times nine feet.
