Area of Land
This is what i have on paper.
North point = 14.74 meters long, South point = 14.36 meters long, East point = 0.5 meters wide, West point = 0.57 meters wide. Total = 7.78 square meters.

What i am trying to do :roll:
From the south point, if i measure either end (west point and east point) 0.3 meters, heading to the north point and draw a line from east to west, how many square meters would i have enclosed between the line and the south point?
I could do it if it was equal lengths :?
