Square footage can be converted into square meters using the conversion factor that one square foot is equal to 0.0929 square meters. The conversion may be necessary when trying to communicate an area of an object, such as a home, to someone that lives in a country operating on the metric system. Feet, an imperial unit, is generally used only in the United States, so knowing the conversion factor is valuable for comparison to standard, or metric, units.
Things You'll Need
Write down 250 square feet.
Multiply 250 square feet by 0.0929, which is the number of square meters per square foot. You should obtain a result of 23.225.
Round the result to the appropriate number of significant digits. Since the original value was a whole number with 3 significant digits, round the value to 23.2 square meters.
