To convert 1 foot into meters we have to multiply 1 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 ft → L(m)

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

L(m) = 1 ft × 0.3048 m

L(m) = 0.3048 m

The final result is:

1 ft → 0.3048 m

We conclude that 1 foot is equivalent to 0.3048 meters:

1 foot = 0.3048 meters
