## How to Convert Meters to Feet

*Example: How many feet are equivalent to 36.75 meters?*

As;

1 meters = 3.28084 feet

36.75 meters = Y feet

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

Y equals 36.75 times 3.28084 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 36.75 * 3.28084 / 1 = 120.57087 feet

Answer is: 120.57087 feet are equivalent to 36.75 meters.
