The meter is a linear measurement, and square feet measure area, so square feet cannot be converted to meters. However, square feet can be converted to square meters, and there are 10.764 square feet in 1 square meter. Each linear meter measures 3.28084 feet.

Yardsticks typically contain meter and centimeter markings as well as feet and inches and usually measure 1 meter, which is just over 3 feet. Yardsticks are used more frequently in the United States, where the metric system is rarely used. In countries where the metric system is established, the use of meter-length rulers without conversion is more common.
