## How many meters (m) are in 1 foot (ft)? What is the formula for how to convert **meters to feet ****(m to **ft)?

**(m to**ft)

**1 meter (m) = 3.2808398950131 feet (ft)**

So we can say that there is 3.2808398950131 feet in 1 meter.

This means that the multiplication conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a meter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement is 3.2808398950131.

Inversely (or reciprocally),

**1 foot (ft) = 0.3048 meter (m)**

So we can say that there is 0.3048 meter in 1 foot.

This means that the division conversion factor to convert a quantity expressed in a meter unit of measurement to an equivalent quantity expressed in a foot unit of measurement is 0.3048.

Knowing this inverse mathematical relationship between the two conversion factors and their reciprocal operations, we can derive two formulas to calculate and convert a quantity of length expressed in meters to an equivalent quantity of length expressed in feet (m to ft). Both formulas will yield the same result. The formulas are:

ft = m × 3.2808398950131→ This is the formula based on the multiplication conversion factor.

and

ft = m ÷ 0.3048→ This is the formula based on the division conversion factor.

#### A note on the meters to feet formulas based on the multiplication & division conversion factors:

For everyday manual calculations where a high degree of precision is not required, it is acceptable to use the approximations:

**ft ≈ m × 3.3**

or

**ft ≈ m ÷ 0.3**

Using the multiplication factor of 3.3 or the division factor of 0.3 provides a **rough estimation** that is suitable for quick calculations for converting meters to feet.

On the other hand, if a precise conversion is necessary, such as in scientific or engineering applications, it is recommended to use the more accurate multiplication factor of 0.39370078740157 or the division factor of 0.3048 to minimize rounding errors and ensure greater accuracy in the conversion from meters to feet.

For example, if you have a length of 5 meters that you want to convert to feet, you would use either of the two formulas as follows:

ft = 5 m × 3.2808398950131 = 16.4041994750655 ft

ft = 5 m ÷ 0.3048 = 16.4041994750655 ft

So, the result is the same using either formula, which is 16.4041994750655 feet.

## What is the formula for how to convert **meters (m)** to **feet & inches (ft & in)**?

Here are the formulas and steps to convert a certain length expressed in meters, such as a person’s height, to **feet & inches**. As an example, let’s use the height of NBA player Nikola Jokic who is reported to be 2.11 meters tall, and convert it to **feet & inches**:

- Convert meters to feet: Divide the number of meters by 0.3048 (since 1 foot = 0.3048 m).

2.11 meters / 0.3048 = 6.92257217847769 feet

- Take the number to the left of the decimal point in step 1 above, as the number of whole feet.

6 feet

- Take the number to the right of the decimal point in step 1 above, and convert it to inches: To do this, multiply it by 12 (since 1 foot = 12 inches).

.92257217847769 feet × 12 = 11.07086614173228 inches

- Round off the result in step 3 to get the number of inches as a whole number.

11.07086614173228 inches is rounded off to 11 inches

- Combine the number of whole feet (in step 2) and inches (in step 4) to get Nikola Jokic’s height in feet & inches.

6 feet & 11 inches

## Meters (m) to feet (ft) conversion chart

To save you time and effort spent on having to perform manual calculations or look up conversion formulas every time a conversion from meters to feet (or to the combined mixed format of feet & inches) is needed, here is a meters-to-feet conversion chart for your quick and easy reference. This conversion chart (or conversion table) shows common measurement values of length in meters and their equivalent measurement values in feet. These equivalent measurement values may be rounded off to 1 or 2 decimal places when it is mathematically expedient for everyday applications.
