JC,
There are approximately 3 feet in a metre so an approximate conversion is to multiply by 3 3 = 9 and get 2700 square feet.
To make the conversion exactly I know that there are 2.54 centimeters in an inch and hence there are
2.54 12 = 30.48 centimeters in a foot.
One metre is 100 centimeters and thus there are
^{30.48}/_{100 } = 0.3048 meters in a foot and hence
^{1}/_{0.3048} = 3.28 feet in a metre.
Hence your 300 square metre lot has is 3.28 3.28 300 = 3227.52 square feet.
