Coding Task: 01.03 Feet and Metres

The third activity that you’ll do is modify some Python code to convert a number of feet to a number of metres in length. The formula for this is given below.

Your Task

In the editor below, fill in the blanks (________) so that the program calculates the number of metres in the given number of feet, and print the results back to the user.


  • The program should run without any errors.
  • The program should calculate the number of metres from a given number of feet and then print the result back to the user.
  • To calculate the number of metres from a number of feet, divide the number of feet by 3.281. For example, 6 feet in metres would be: 6 / 3.281 = 1.8287.
  • Try changing the value of feet in the code. Does your result change? If it doesn’t, make sure you are using variables and that you’re printing the right one!
  • Your answer might print out with a tonne of extra decimal digits, like 1.828710758914965. That’s okay! As an extension task, put your calculation into a round() command along with the number of digits you want to round to, for example: rounded = round(6 / 3.281, 2).


Below is an example of how the program should run:
