### What is a square meter?

A **square meter** is a unit of area that is equal to a square that is 1 meter long on each side. So if you have a square garden that measures 1 meter by 1 meter, it would be 1 square meter.

### What is a square foot?

A **square foot** is similar, but it’s a bit smaller than a square meter. A square foot is equal to a square that is 1 foot long on each side.

### How to convert square meters to square feet

To change square meters into square feet, you can use a little math! Specifically, 1 square meter is equal to about 10.764 square feet. So, if we want to find out how many square feet are in 7 square meters, we can use this equation:

$$

7 \text{ m}^2 \times 10.764 \text{ ft}^2/\text{m}^2 = 75.347 \text{ ft}^2

$$

This means that **7 square meters** is roughly **75.347 square feet**.

### Examples of 7 square meters

If you want to visualize what 7 square meters looks like, here are **7 objects** that could help you picture it:

- A square garden space measuring about 2.65 meters on each side.
- A small
**patch of grass**in your backyard that covers 7 square meters. - A
**tiny shed**that takes up the same area. - A small
**sandbox**for kids to play in, if it’s about 2.65 meters by 2.65 meters. - A few
**potted plants**placed together that cover a similar area. - A
**st rectangular table**that could fit in your garden space, measuring about 1 meter by 7 meters. - A small
**flower bed**that gives room for various flowers to be planted.

Now that you have learned about square meters and square feet, you can measure your garden and plan out what to plant! 🌱 Happy gardening!
