$18 \text{ ft}\approx 5.486\text{ m}$

Work Step by Step

If we want to convert from feet to meters, we have to consider the following conversion rate: $ 1\text{ ft}=0.3048\text{ m}$ We multiply both sides by 18 in order to get the answer to the question: $18 \text{ ft} =18\times 0.3048\text{ m}=5.4864\text{ m}$ After rounding to two decimal places: $18 \text{ ft}\approx 5.486\text{ m}$
