One meter equals 3.28 feet.
Thus, if a stream is 10 meters long, it can be said that, in other words, it is 32.8ft (3.28x10).
Let's look at another example. This time let's convert feet to meters. Suppose your room 12 feet across. So, to calculate this in meters, we will divide the value in feet from 3.28:
12/3.28= 3.66m
Hence, your room is 3.66 meters across.

One meter equals 39.37 inches, which equals 3.28 feet which is equal to 1.09 yards.
Or you can even say that a foot is equal to 36 inches in a yard. And a yard is very roughly equal to one meter. Therefore, one yard is equal to 0.9144 meters.

There are  3.280839895013  feet in a meter.  This works out to 39.37007874016 inches.

The foot is defined as 0.3048 meters exactly.  That means that you can use this number in calculations to any number of decimal places that you need.  The government agency which determines standards of measurement for the US is the National Institute of Standards and Technology. You can find out most anything you want to know from their General Tables of Units of Measurement .

Normally 3.29 meters equals to a feet. Meter basically is a calculation of length. It is the basic unit for length in the metric system and in the International System of Units (SI), applied all across the globe for common and scientific purposes.

In the past, the meter was explained by the French Academy of Sciences as 1/10,000,000 of the distance from the equator towards the North Pole through Paris. Currently it has been illustrated by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures as the space traveled by light in complete vacuum in 1/299,792,458 of a second.

The term meter originates from the Greek term 'metron', which means 'a measure' coming through the French expression meter. Its initial documented application in the English language was in the year 1797.
