# PTP Square Meter Calculator

The PTP Square Meter Calculator tool will help you identify the correct specifications for all of your projects, from sheds to fences!

**Enter a value into the length and width input boxes to calculate the area in Square Meters.**

Our Square Meter Calculator will calculate the area in square meters for the following units of measurement:

**Meters**, **Centimeters**, **Millimeters**, **Inches**, **Feet**, **Yards**.

**How do you calculate square meters?**

The following covers how you can calculate the area in square meters without the use of our calculator (although we’d definitely suggest using it for inches, feet and yards!)

**For Meters**

If you are measuring in Meters, simply **multiply** the **length** x **width** to get the **area**.

For example, **4M** x **5M** = **20 M Sq**.

**For Millimeters**

If you are measuring in Millimeters, multiply the **length** x **width** to get the **area**, and then **divide** the result by **1000** to get area in meters.

For example, **4000mm** x **5000mm** = **20,000mm**, then **20,000mm** / **1000** = **20 M Sq**.

**For Centimeters**

If you are measuring in Centimeters, **multiply** the **length** x **width** to get the **area**, and then **divide** the result by **100** to get area in meters.

For example, **400cm** x **500cm** = **2000cm**, then **2000cm** / **100** = **20 M Sq**.

**For Inches**

If you are measuring in inches the formula becomes a little bit tricky.

**1 inch** **is approximately** **0.0254M**. You need to **divide** your **length** and **width** values by **39.37** to get the values in Meters, and then **multiply** those values together to get the area in Meters.

For example, **100 inches** (length) / **39.37** = **2.54M** and **300 inches** (width) / **39.37** = **7.62M**. **2.54M** x **7.62M** = **19.35 M Sq**.

**For Feet**

If you are measuring in feet the formula becomes a little bit tricky.

**1ft is approximately 0.3048M.** You need to **divide** your **length** and **width** values by **3.281** to get the values in Meters, and then **multiply** those values together to get the area in Meters.

For example, **10ft** (length) / **3.281** = **3.04M** and **30ft** (width) / **3.281** = **9.14M**. **3.04M** x **9.14M** = **278.7 M Sq**.

**For Yards**

If you are measuring in Meters, simply **multiply** the **length** x **width** to get the **area**.

For example, **4M** x **5M** = **20 M Sq**.
