### How to Convert From Square Meter to Square Feet?

The conversion rate of converting meter to feet (linear measurement) is given as:
1 meter = 3.28 feet.
The measures given is in area, therefore, we would need to square when doing our conversion. To convert 3.5 square meter to square feet, do the following:
3.5 m² × (3.28 ft/1 m)² (this is where the student made an error by omitting or forgetting to square)
= 3.5 × 10.8
= 37.8 square feet
Therefore, we can conclude that the error that the student made was that he forgot to square.
