## Conversion formula

The conversion factor from feet to meters is 0.3048, which means that 1 foot is equal to 0.3048 meters:

1 ft = 0.3048 m

To convert 1.7 feet into meters we have to multiply 1.7 by the conversion factor in order to get the length amount from feet to meters. We can also form a simple proportion to calculate the result:

1 ft → 0.3048 m

1.7 ft → L(m)

Solve the above proportion to obtain the length L in meters:

L(m) = 1.7 ft × 0.3048 m

L(m) = 0.51816 m

The final result is:

1.7 ft → 0.51816 m

We conclude that 1.7 feet is equivalent to 0.51816 meters:

1.7 feet = 0.51816 meters

## Alternative conversion

Another way is saying that 1.7 feet is equal to 1 ÷ 1.929905820596 meters.

## Approximate result

For practical purposes we can round our final result to an approximate numerical value. We can say that one point seven feet is approximately zero point five one eight meters:

1.7 ft ≅ 0.518 m

An alternative is also that one meter is approximately one point nine three times one point seven feet.
