1 Square Meter = 3 Square Feet

Recommended Posts

So if one were converting the price per SQUARE FOOT to square meter one would take the price per foot and multiply times 3.

So if a condo was listed at 250 per square foot it would equal 750 per square meter...correct?

Not even close.

Think of your floor tiles.

Lets say 1 floor tile is 1'

And for arguments sake lets say 3' = 1m (it doesn't its 1m = 3.28083989501')

Now a square of tiles 1' x 1' would contain 1 tile , but a square of 3 x 3 1' tiles would contain 9 1' tiles.

Get it?

Cheers

Thanks guys...math and geometry was obviously never my strong suit :o

I am working on a post comparing current costs for condos in USA (post bust) with prices in Thailand (pre-bust??). I need this info to get my conversion prices correct.

If obtaining tiles for floor they will normally consider 1 box of 12"x12" (10 tiles) as enough for one square meter (there is gout around each so that seems to work out pretty good).

If you are selling an apartment to me and you want to use that conversion then you are right and I will save a lot of money!

Imagine that all the tiles on the cube were 1 foot x 1 foot [forget about the depth] 3 feet = approx 1 metre. Taking the bottom of the red side - the overall dimension is 1 foot x 3 feet (or approx 1 metre)= 1 sq ft + 1sq ft + 1 sq ft = 3 sq ft. So not only you will have to have the bottom row but also the middle and top rows so to convert sq ft into sq yds (or approx sq m.) multiply by 9 and not 3!

Go to 'Google' & put into the search box convert 10sq ft into sq m and then click search and it will come up 10 (sq feet) = 0.9290304 sq meters I have just used 10 as an example.

A nifty trick to do a quick conversion of measures or currencies when using the Google search engine: simply type the question into the search box. You can write a full sentence like “how much is 1 square metre in square feet?” or simply “1 square metre in square feet” (It works also with American spelling)

Thanks again...and the Rubic's Cube a great graphic depiction...I suspect we have some math teachers among us here :o

So if a condo sells for 100 [insert relevant currency unit] per square foot, that would be equal to 900 per square meter...correct?

Approximately...I round it to 1 meter = 3 feet

For normal conversion (not exact) use 10 sq feet per 1 sq meter. So a price of 100 per sq foot would be 1000 per sq meter

Johnnybkk, if you think it is correct to round 10.7639104167 off to 9, then your calculation is correct., but it is a highly unusual way of rounding off a number.

1 (square meter) = 10.7639104 square feet

More about calculator.

Search for documents containing the terms 1 square meter in square feet.

Works for me using meter rather than metre.
