To convert 5.8 feet into meters we have to multiply 5.8 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

5.8 ft → L(m)

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

L(m) = 5.8 ft × 0.3048 m

L(m) = 1.76784 m

The final result is:

5.8 ft → 1.76784 m

We conclude that 5.8 feet is equivalent to 1.76784 meters:

5.8 feet = 1.76784 meters
