Q: A: ### Quick Answer

**Meters are unable to be converted into square meters.** Meters only refer to the length of a given object, while square meters are used to measure the area of an object.

Although meters cannot be converted into square meters, they are useful in determining area in square meters. Discover an object's area by multiplying its length by its width. When both of these measurements are in meters, the resulting product is known as square meters.

When determining the area in meters of an object in different unit of measurement, convert the original unit to meters before multiplying the length and width.
