What is the relationship between meters and feet+inches?

1 inch is equal to 0.0254 meters. Also, 1 foot is equal to 12 inches. Therefore, we can deduce that 1 foot is equal to 0.3048 meters.

Meters are units of distance in the metric system. Also, the meter is the base unit of this system. We use the letter m to represent meters.

Feet and inches are imperial units of distance. We use the abbreviation in to represent inches or the symbol ” and we use the abbreviation ft to represent feet or the symbol ′ .

How to convert meters to feet+inches?

To convert from meters to feet+inches, we can start by finding the total number of inches. Therefore, we divide meters by 0.0254 to find inches.

Next, we divide the inches by 12 to find the number of feet. Here, we must take only the whole number, without considering the decimals.

Lastly, we multiply the whole number of feet by 12 and subtract this from the total number of inches. The result is the number of inches remaining.

Example 1:

How many feet+inches equal 2 meters?

We find the total number of inches by dividing by 0.0254:

d(in) = 2/0.0254

d(in) = 78.740157 in

Next, we find the feet by dividing the inches by 12:

d(ft) = 78.740157/12

d(ft) = 6.561680 ft

The whole number of feet is 6.

Multiplying the number of feet (6) by 12 and subtracting from the inches, we have:

d(in) = 78.740157- 6(12)

d(in) = 6.740157 in

Therefore, 2 meters is equal to 6 ft + 6.740157 in.

Example 2:

Find the equivalence in feet+inches of 4.5 meters.

By dividing by 0.0254, we can get the total number of inches:

d(in) = 4.5/0.0254

d(in) = 177.165354 in

We get the feet by dividing by 12:

d(ft) = 177.165354/12

d(ft) = 14.763780 ft

The whole number of feet is 14.

Now, we multiply the number of feet (14) by 12 and subtract from the number of inches:

d(in) = 177.165354 – 14(12)

d(in) = 9.165354 in

Therefore, 4.5 meters is equal to 14 ft + 9.165354 in.
