A four sided figure is not fixed by just the lengths of the sides. You also need the angles in the corner, or the bearing angles of each side. The bearing angles are normally recorded on the plat or drawing of the lot, an angle in degrees, minutes, seconds, preceded by N or S, followed by E or W.

We need to know where on the figure you are starting, and whether you are going clockwise or counterclockwise, give each side length and direction as you go around (or traverse) the figure.

Without the angles, all we can tell is that it is somewhere between 0 and 30184 sq. ft.
