# How to Convert 5.6 Feet to Meters

Save

Measuring with feet, inches and yards is still done only in the United States and just a few other countries. People outside the U.S. measure with the metric system. There are 3.28 feet in a meter, or a little more than a yard, so a handy trick is to multiply the number of meters by three to get the number of feet -- but this is only an approximation. If you want to convert 5.6 feet to meters, you can do so by using a basic math formula.

### Things You'll Need

• Calculator (recommended)
• Input 5.6 on your calculator, or write the number down on a slip of paper.

• Multiply 5.6 by 0.3048. Push "Equals" or perform the calculation by hand. There are 0.3048 meters in a foot.

• View the result. The answer should be 1.70688. In most cases, you would round this up to 1.71. There are 1.71 meters in 5.6 feet.
