Although the process of converting one unit of measure to another may seem daunting, it is a straightforward process as long as you know how a unit of measure you are converting from equates to a unit of measure to which you are converting. For example, when converting meters (m) to feet (ft), you simply need to know that there are 3.2808399 feet per meter (ft/m). This information is the key to calculating your conversion results.
Things You'll Need
Determine the values that you want to convert. For our particular purposes we want to convert 6.1 meters into an equivalent number of feet.
Multiply 6.1 by 3.2808399. This represents the number of meters that we want to convert multiplied by the number of feet in a meter.
Use the calculator to complete the conversion process. In our conversion, 6.1 x 3.2808399 (3.28084) equals 20.01312 feet. Therefore, 6.1 meters is equivalent to 20.01312 feet.
