## What is the relationship between feet+inches and meters?

Feet, inches, and meters are units of distance. However, feet and inches belong to the imperial system of units and meters belong to the metric system.

1 foot is equal to 12 inches and 1 inch is equal to 0.0254 meters.

## How to convert feet+inches to meters?

We can convert feet+inches to meters by first converting feet to inches. We can do this by multiplying feet by 12.

Next, we get the total number of inches by adding the equivalent of feet in inches and the number of inches given initially.

Finally, we multiply the total number of inches by 0.0254 to find the number of meters.

#### Example 1:

How many meters are equal to 3 feet + 2 inches?

We start by converting the number of feet to inches. Therefore, we have: 3×12=36.

Now, we add the 36 inches to the 2 inches given initially. Therefore, we have: 36+2=38.

Lastly, we multiply the total number of inches by 0.0254 to get the number of meters:

d(m) = 38×0.0254

d(m) = 0.9652 m

#### Example 2:

How many meters equal 5 feet + 9 inches?

We multiply the number of feet by 12 to get its equivalent in inches: 5×12=60.

Now, we calculate the total number of inches by adding both values: 60+9=69.

By multiplying the total number of inches by 0.0254, we have:

d(m) = 69×0.0254

d(m) = 1.7526 m

#### Example 3:

Find the number of meters that are equal to 7 feet + 11 inches.

We start by multiplying the number of feet by 12 to get its equivalent in inches: 7×12=84.

Adding to the inches, we have: 84+11=95.

If we multiply the number of inches by 0.0254, we have:

d(m) = 95×0.0254

d(m) = 2.413 m
