Imagine you have a **big garden** where you want to plant flowers and vegetables! Garden sizes can be measured in **square meters** or **square feet**. Today, we’re going to learn how to change a garden’s size from square meters into square feet.

When we talk about square meters, we are measuring an area. A square meter is like a square that is **1 meter long** on each side. If you have 35 square meters, that means you can fit a bunch of squares that are each 1 meter by 1 meter in the garden.

Now, to convert square meters into square feet, we use the fact that **1 square meter is equal to about 10.764 square feet**. So, if we want to find out how many square feet are in 35 square meters, we can use this equation:

$$

35 \text{ square meters} \times 10.764 \text{ square feet/square meter} = 376.736 \text{ square feet}

$$

This means that **35 square meters is about 376.74 square feet**.

Let’s think of some **examples of objects** that could fit into exactly **35 square meters**:

**A large garden shed**(about 2.25 meters by 5 meters)**A small swimming pool**(about 3.5 meters by 10 meters)**5 picnic tables**(each table can take up about 7 square feet)**A big play area**for kids (around 4.5 meters by 7.8 meters)**A cozy gazebo**(about 6 meters by 5.83 meters)**A collection of flower beds**(about 12 meters of flowers planted in a 3-meter wide area)**An outdoor yoga space**(about 5.9 meters by 6 meters)

So next time you look at your garden, you can imagine how many things you can fit in that space measuring 35 square meters or 376.74 square feet! Happy gardening! ðŸŒ¼ðŸŒ¿
