## How to convert feet to meters?

To convert from a given distance in feet to meters, we have to multiply the number of feet by 0.3048. Therefore, we can form the following formula:

#### Example 1:

Find the number of meters that are equal to 5 feet.

To find the number of meters, we have to multiply the number of feet by 0.3048. Therefore, we have:

d(m) = 5×0.3048

d(m) = 1.524 m

#### Example 2:

Determine the number of meters that are equal to 8 feet.

By multiplying the number of feet by 0.3048, we have:

d(m) = 8×0.3048

d(m) = 2.4384 m

#### Example 3:

Find the number of meters that are equivalent to 15.5 feet.

Multiplying feet by 0.3048, we get:

d(m) = 15.5×0.3048

d(m) = 4.7244 m
