Hmm, silly question but I need to know

to clear my head !!!!

If for example a shot from a 5D will produce a maximum of a 20' x 16' image @ 300dpi

if I want to produce a larger picture than that, would I need to reduce the dpi to say 180dpi or less or do I still keep the dpi at 300dpi.

If you understand what I mean?? I increase image size for a particular camera do I need to reduce the dpi....and when you 'hit' the maximum print size is this why images are better viewed at a distance rather than close up.
