## 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 980 feet into decimeters we have to multiply 980 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

980 ft → L(dm)

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

L(dm) = 980 ft × 3.048 dm

L(dm) = 2987.04 dm

The final result is:

980 ft → 2987.04 dm

We conclude that 980 feet is equivalent to 2987.04 decimeters:
