The inverse of 3.048 is 1/3.048 or 0.328. To convert from decimeters to feet, multiply decimeters by 0.328.
The formula is expressed as:
dm × 0.328 = ft

Converting decimeters to feet is a conversion between units from separate unit systems - decimeters are metric (SI) defined units while feet are US Customary / UK Imperial .

SI Unit

Within the SI (metric) system of measurement, the decimeter is officially defined as one tenth (1/10) of a meter. The decimeter is not widely used in everyday situations. Internationally it is spelled 'decimetre' whereas the U.S. spells it 'decimeter'. The symbol for decimeters is dm.

Customary/Imperial Unit

The foot is a length unit of measure within the US Customary and UK Imperial systems. It is commonly abbreviated as ft or using the ' symbol. The official definition of the foot is 0.3048 meters. Within the Imperial system, the foot is equal to 12 inches or 1/3 of a yard. The foot is very widely used within the United States in situations where nearly the rest of the world would measure in meters. Globally, the foot is used by the aviation community as the standard measurement of flight altitude eg. 35,000 feet.
