Hi,
The factor that I remember for converting lengths between the metric system and the Imperial system is that there are 2.54 centimeters in 1 inch. Thus
1 ft = 12 in = 12 2.54 = 30.48 cm
There are 100 centimeters in an inch so
1 ft = ^{30.48}/_{100} m = 0.3048 m
But 1 square foot is 1 foot by 1 foot and hence
1 sq ft = 1 ft 1 ft = 0.3048 m 0.3048 m = 0.09290304 sq meters
Finally
2700 sq ft = 2700 0.09290304 = 250.84 sq meters
