**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.
