Imagine you’re working in your **garden**. You’ve got a special area that measures **15 square meters**. But sometimes, people use different units to talk about sizes. In the United States, they often use **square feet** instead of square meters. So, let’s figure out how many **square feet** are in those **15 square meters**!

To convert from **square meters** to **square feet**, we use a special number. There are about **10.764 square feet** in **1 square meter**. So, to find out how many square feet there are in **15 square meters**, we can do a little math:

$$

15 \, \text{square meters} \times 10.764 \, \text{square feet/square meter} = 161.46 \, \text{square feet}

$$

This means that **15 square meters** is approximately **161.46 square feet**!

Now, let’s think of some **objects** that would take up that much space in your garden:

- A
**small garden shed** - A
**small pool** - A
**set of 8 garden chairs and a table** - A
**patch of grass for a few kids to play on** - A
**large patch for planting vegetables** - A
**raised flower bed** - A
**big sandbox for playing**

All of these examples take up about the same amount of space as **15 square meters** or **161.46 square feet**! Isn’t that cool? Now you can visualize how much area you might need for your gardening projects!
