The area of the rectangular building in square meters is $871{\text{m}}^{2}$.

See the step by step solution

## Step 1: Write the given data from the question

The width of the rectangular building $w=75\text{ft}$,

The length of the rectangular building, $l=125\text{ft}$.

## Step 2: Determine the formula to calculate the area of the rectangular building in squared meters

The formula to calculate the area of the rectangular building is as follows:

${\mathbit{A}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbit{l}}{\mathbf{×}}{\mathbit{w}}$ …… (i)

Conversion from foot to meter:

${\mathbf{1}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{ft}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{0}}{\mathbf{.}}{\mathbf{3048}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{m}}$

## Step 3: Calculate the area of the rectangular building in squared meters

Calculate the area of the building.

Substitute $75\text{ft}$ for w and $125\text{ft}$ for $l$ into equation (i).

$\mathrm{A}=75×125\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathrm{A}=9375{\text{ft}}^{2}$
