How to convert meters to feet

1 foot is exactly 0.3048 meters. To convert meters to feet, divide your figure by 0.3048. Take a look at the articles section for a feature on how many feet are in a meter.

X(ft) = Y(m) ÷ 0.3048

As an example, let's say you have 5m of wrapping paper on a roll. The calculation will be: 5 ÷ 0.3048 = 16.404 ft.

How to convert feet to meters

To convert feet to meters, multiply your figure by 0.3048. Should you wish to convert from feet to meters in your head, divide your figure by 3 for a very rough approximation.

Y(m) = X(ft) × 0.3048
