## Converting feet to meters (m)

The metric system, which is mainly used worldwide, is based on the meter as the basic unit of measurement for length. To convert feet to meters, the conversion factor is used:

**1 foot = 0.3048 meters**

*Example:* 10 feet x 0.3048 = 3.048 meters

## Converting feet to centimeters (cm)

Since 1 meter is equal to 100 centimeters, you can convert feet directly to centimeters by using the appropriate conversion factor:

**1 foot = 30.48 centimeters**

*Example:* 5 feet x 30.48 = 152.4 centimeters

## Converting feet to inches

The foot is directly linked to the inch, as 1 foot corresponds exactly to 12 inches. The conversion is therefore particularly simple here:

**1 foot = 12 inches**

*Example:* 8 feet = 8 x 12 = 96 inches

## Converting feet to yards

One yard is equal to 3 feet. This makes the conversion simple and direct:

**1 foot = 0.3333 yards (or 1/3 yard)**

*Example:* 9 feet = 9 x (1/3) = 3 yards

## Summary

Although the foot is not the standard unit of measurement for length in many parts of the world, it is important to know how to convert it to other units. This is particularly useful in science, engineering, trade and travel. Using the conversion factors above, you can easily convert feet to other common measures of length
