Answer:

#1,394 " m"^2#

Explanation:

The first step is to convert the lengths of the rectangle from feet to meters. There are 3.281 feet in 1 meter (i.e., #1 " m" = 3.281 " ft"#).

length = #100 " ft" xx (1 " m")/(3.281 " ft")=30.5 " m"#

width = #150 " ft" xx (1 " m")/(3.281 " ft")=45.7 " m"#

Area = length #xx# width

Area = #30.5 " m" xx 45.7 " m"#

Area = #1,394 " m"^2#

NOTE: You can also plug the question directly into Google, Bing, or Wolfram Alpha and it will give you the answer (but without the work above).
