To convert length x width dimensions from inches to meters we should multiply each amount by the conversion factor. One inch equals 0.0254 meters, in order to convert 2 x 12 inches to meters we have to multiply each amount of inches by 0.0254 to obtain the length and width in meters. In this case to convert 2 x 12 inches into meters we should multiply the length which is 2 inches by 0.0254 and the width which is 12 inches by 0.0254. The result is the following:
2 x 12 inches = 0.051 x 0.305 meters
An inch (symbol: in) is a unit of length. It is defined as 1⁄12 of a foot, also is 1⁄36 of a yard. Though traditional standards for the exact length of an inch have varied, it is equal to exactly 25.4 mm.

The meter (symbol: m) is the fundamental unit of length in the International System of Units (SI).

In 1799, France start using the metric system, and that is the first country using the metric.
To calculate a inch value to the corresponding value in meters, just multiply the quantity in inches by 0.0254 (the conversion factor).
meters = inches * 0.0254
The factor 0.0254 is the result from the division 1 / 39.3701 (meter definition). Therefore, another way would be:
meters = inches / 39.3701
