A Square feet (also represented as sq feet) is a unit of measurement of area and it is commonly used in the United States, Canada, and in United Kingdom. While describing the area of anything, we use this measurement and estimate the number with respect to the unit. Area determined in terms of square feet is one of the commonly used measurement values and this number can be converted from square feet to another unit. Square feet can be converted to square meters which in turn can be converted to meters.

Example 1: Given area of a rectangle is 40sq feet and the length of the rectangle is 2m. Calculate the width of the rectangle in meters.

Area of a rectangle, A = length * width

Given: length of the rectangle, l = 2m

Area of the rectangle, A = 40sq feet

First we should convert the units of area from square feet to meters2.

Standard conversion: 1m2 = 10.764sqft

This implies Area = 40sq feet = 40/10.764 = 3.72m2

So width of rectangle = Area/length= 3.72m2/ 2m = 1.86m

Example 2: Given area of a rectangle is 100sq feet and the length of the rectangle is 4.6m. Calculate the width of the rectangle in meters.

Area of a rectangle, A = length * width

Given: length of the rectangle, l = 4.6m

Area of the rectangle, A = 100sq feet

First we should convert the units of area from square feet to meters2.

Standard conversion: 1m2 = 10.764sqft

This implies Area = 100sq feet = 100/10.764 = 9.29m2

So width of rectangle = Area/length= 9.29m2/ 4.6m = 2.02m
