## How to convert square feet to square meters

Divide ft² area by 10.7639

### Explanation:

1 meter is about 3.28084 feet. Squaring both values, 1 meter squared is about 10.7639 feet squared.

1 m = 3.28084 ft

(1 m)² = (3.28084 ft)²

1 m² = 10.7639 ft²

dividing both sides by the feet squared,

1 m² / 10.7639 ft² = 1 and,

1 m² / 10.7639 ft² ≈ 0.092903 m²/ft²

Therefore, to convert ft² to m² we multiply by 0.092903 m²/ft². Meters squared (m²) will cancel and we are left with units of feet squared (ft²). Alternatively, to convert ft² to m² we divide ft² by 10.7639 ft²/m²

ft² = m² ÷ 10.7639 ft²/m²

Example: Convert 150 square feet to square meters.

150 ft² to m² is calculated here using the division factor 10.7639

150 ft² / 10.7639 ft²/m²

Divide through and cancel ft² units

150 ~~ft²~~ / 10.7639
~~ft²~~/m² = 13.93547 m²

150 ft² ≈ 13.93547 m²
