## How to Convert Meters to Feet

*Example: How many feet are equivalent to 31.43 meters?*

As;

1 meters = 3.28084 feet

31.43 meters = Y feet

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

Y equals 31.43 times 3.28084 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 31.43 * 3.28084 / 1 = 103.1168012 feet

Answer is: 103.1168012 feet are equivalent to 31.43 meters.
