$9.8\text{ m}\approx 32.15 \text{ ft}$

Work Step by Step

If want to convert from meters to feet, we have to consider the following conversion rate: $0.3048 \text{ m}= 1 \text{ ft}$ By dividing both sides by $0.3048$, we get: $1\text{ m}= \frac{1}{0.3048} \text{ ft}$ We mulitply both sides by 9.8 in order to get the answer to the question: $9.8\text{ m}= \frac{9.8}{0.3048} \text{ ft}\approx 32.152\text{ ft}$ By rounding it to two decimal places: $9.8\text{ m}\approx 32.15 \text{ ft}$
