You may use the conversions factors to process from feet to inches to centimeters to meters.

1 ft = 12 in
1 in = 2.54 cm
100 cm = 1 m

An example
How many meters are in 10 ft.

$10 f t$ x $\frac{12 \in}{1 f t}$ x $\frac{2.54 c m}{1 \in}$= $304.8 c m$

then

$304.8 c m$ x $\frac{1 m}{100 c m}$ = $3.048 m$
