‘Feet’ is the plural form of the word ‘foot,’ which refers to a single unit of measurement. Inside this sense, the mathematical distinction among foot & feet is determined by the size of the distances and length being measured.

The “foot” has historically been an element of several local unit systems, such as the Greek, Romans, Chinese, French, & English systems. It was different lengths from nation to country, city – city, or even trade to trade.

The metre was first established in 1793 as one ten-millionth of a distance in a great circle from the equatorial to the North Pole, implying that the Earth’s circle is roughly 40000 km.

## The Conversion

A useful length conversion formula is the foot to metres formula. But before we go into the foot to metres calculation, let’s review what a foot is and what a metre is. The length units are metre & foot. In the metric system, a metre is indeed a system of measurement. In 1959, the United States & members of a Commonwealth of Nations reached an agreement that outlined numerous changes. 1 foot = 0.3048 metres is one such conversion. The foot to metres formula is being used to convert length in feet/feet in the United States to metres in the International System of Units.

The formula for converting feet to metres using the aforementioned conversion is as follows. To convert the result in metres from the supplied length n of foot measurement, multiply it by 0.3048

n feet equal in metres (0.3048 metres).

### SOLVED EXAMPLES

- A square has a length of 4 feet. In metres, how long is it? Round your answer to the nearest two decimal places.
- To determine: the square’s length in metres.

The formula for converting feet to metres is as follows:

= 0.3048 metres Equals 1 foot

The square’s length in metres

= 0.3048 = 4 feet

= 1.2192 metres

= 1.22 metres is the length of the square.

- A rectangle’s measurements are 3 ft x 5 ft. Calculate the area in square metres, rounding it to 2 decimals.
- The area of the supplied rectangle in square metres has to be determined.

First, we change the dimensions to metres using foot-to-meters formula:

The rectangle’s length is 5 ft = 5 0.3048 = 1.524 metres.

The rectangle’s width is 3 ft = 3 0.3048 = 0.9144 metres.

The rectangle’s area is 1.524 0.9144 = 1.3935456.

1.39 square metres is the area of a given rectangular
