# 1.2 Meters Is How Many Feet

## How to convert meters to feet and inches step-by-step

### Step 1: Convert from meters to feet

1 meter = 3.28 x feet, so,

1.2 x 1 meter = 1.2 x 3.28 feet, or

1.2 meters = 3.94 feet.

You are watching: 1.2 meters is how many feet

### Step 2: Convert the decimal feet to inches

An answer like “3.94 feet” might not mean much to you because you may want to express the decimal part, which is in feet, in inches once its is a smaller unit.

So, take everything after the decimal point (0.94), then multiply that by 12 to turn it into inches. This works because one foot = 12 inches. Then,

3.94 feet = 3 feet + 0.94 foot. Once 0.94 foot x 12 = 11.28 inches or 3.94 feet = 3 feet and 11.28 inches. Obviously, this is equivalent to 1.2 meters.

### Step 3: Convert from decimal inches to an usable fraction of inch

The previous step gave you the answer in decimal inches (11.28), but how to measure it in an ruler or tape?See below a procedure, which can also be made using a calculator, to convert the decimal inches to the nearest usable fraction:

a) Subtract 11, the number of whole inches, from 11.28:

11.28 – 11 = 0.28. This is the fractional part of the inches value.

b) Multiply 0.28 times 16 (it could be 8, 16, 32, 64, … depending on the exactness you want) to get the number of 16th”s inches:0.28 x 16 = 4.48. This is the number of 16th”s of an inch and also the numerator of the fraction which may be still reduced.

c) Round the result to nearest integer:

round(4.48) = 4

Finally, 1.2 meters = 3 feet and 4/16 of an inch.

As 4/16 is not in the simplest form, it should be reduced to 1/4 in order to get a simpler fraction.

In short: 1.2 m = 3″11 1/4″(*)
