To convert length x width dimensions from feet to meters we should multiply each amount by the conversion factor. One foot equals 0.3048 meters, in order to convert 8 x 5 feet to meters we have to multiply each amount of feet by 0.3048 to obtain the length and width in meters. In this case to convert 8 x 5 feet into meters we should multiply the length which is 8 feet by 0.3048 and the width which is 5 feet by 0.3048. The result is the following:
8 x 5 feet = 2.44 x 1.52 meters
A foot (symbol: ft) is a unit of length. It is equal to 0.3048 m, and used in the imperial system of units and United States customary units. The unit of foot derived from the human foot. It is subdivided into 12 inches.
The meter (symbol: m) is the fundamental unit of length in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as "the length of the path travelled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second." In 1799, France start using the metric system, and that is the first country using the metric.
To calculate a foot value to the corresponding value in meters, just multiply the quantity in feet by 0.3048 (the conversion factor).
meters = feet * 0.3048
The factor 0.3048 is the result from the division 1 / 3.28084 (centimeter definition). Therefore, another way would be:
meters = feet / 3.28084
