Imagine you have a **big garden** where you like to grow flowers and vegetables. When we talk about the area of a garden, we often measure it in **square meters** or **square feet**.

**What is a Square Meter?**

A**square meter**is a way to measure an area. Think of it as a square that is 1 meter long on each side. So, if you walked 1 meter in one direction and 1 meter in another direction, you would have a square meter.**What is a Square Foot?**

Now, a**square foot**is a little bit smaller than a square meter. A square foot is a square that is 1 foot long on each side.**How Do We Convert Between Them?**

To understand how these measurements relate, we can use a little math. There are about**10.764 square feet**in**1 square meter**. So, if we want to find out how many square feet are in**200 square meters**, we can use this equation:$$

200 \text{ square meters} \times 10.764 \text{ square feet/square meter} = 2152.8 \text{ square feet}

$$This means that your garden, which is

**200 square meters**, is**about 2153 square feet**.
