## How to Convert Inches Square to Meters Square

*Example: How many meters square are equivalent to 80.34 inches square?*

As;

1 inches square = 0.000645 meters square

80.34 inches square = Y meters square

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 80.34 times 0.000645 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 80.34 * 0.000645 / 1 = 0.0518193 meters square

Answer is: 0.0518193 meters square are equivalent to 80.34 inches square.
