## How to convert square meters to square feet

Multiply m² area by 10.7639

### Explanation:

1 foot is exactly 0.3048 meters. Squaring both values, 1 foot squared is exactly 0.09290304 meters squared.

1 ft = 0.3048 m

(1 ft)² = (0.3048 m)²

1 ft² = 0.09290304 m²

dividing both sides by the meters squared,

1 ft² / 0.09290304 m² = 1 and,

1 ft² / 0.09290304 m² ≈ 10.7639 ft²/m²

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

ft² = m² × 10.7639

Example: Convert 150 square meters to square feet.

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

150 m² × 10.7639 ft²/m²

Multiply through and cancel m² units

150 ~~m²~~ × 10.7639
ft²/~~m²~~ = 1,614.585 ft²

150 m² = 1,614.585 ft²
