The foot is also a unit of measure in the imperial and US customary systems of measurement. In addition, the exact value of foot is around 0.3048 meter. Besides, a foot contains 12 inches and 3 feet is considered around the yard.

Furthermore, the length of the foot is in between 250 to 335 mm (millimetre). Also, its symbol is ft.

Meter to Feet Conversion

For converting meter to feet firstly we should know the difference between their lengths. That is one meter is equal to 3.28 feet and one foot is equal to 12 inches as per rule. So, to convert meter to feet just simply multiply the number of meter to the value of feet per meter.

That is

Conversion of Meter into foot = Number of meter / Number of feet per meter.

Example: Convert the following meters into feet?

Meter: A- 15 m, B- 5.5 m, C- 6.07 m, D- 12.96 m


A = 15 m × 3.28 ft. = 49.2 ft.

B = 5.5 m × 3.28 ft. = 18.04 ft.

C = 6.07 m 3.28 ft. = 19.91 ft.

D = 12.96 m × 3.28 ft. = 42.52 ft.

In all the cases mentioned above the value of feet is derived by multiplying the value of meter to value of feet per meter.

Meters to Inches

Besides the question can be simplified again to know the value of inches. Furthermore, we know that one foot consists of 12 inches and if we multiply the value of digits after decimal then we will get the value of inches. Taking the answer of A, B, C, and D into consideration the value of inches will be:


A = 49.2 ft. = 49 feet and 0.2 inches (0.2 × 12 = 2.4 inches) = 49 feet 2.4 inches.

B 18.04 ft. = 18 feet and 0.4 inches (0.4 × 12 = 4.8 inches) = 18 feet 4.8 inches.

C = 19.91 ft. = 19 feet and 0.91 inches (0.91 × 12 = 10.92 inches) = 19 feet 10.92 inches

D = 42.52 ft. = 42 feet and 0.52 inches (0.52 × 12 = 6.24 inches) = 42 feet and 6.24 inches

In all the above cases we simply multiple the decimal values by 12 (that is one foot).
