How to convert square feet to square meters
Divide ft² area by 10.7639
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
