Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

There are 43,560 square feet in an acre, so divide the square footage by 43,560 to get acreage.

For square or rectangular areas with 90Âº corners, multiply length x width to get square feet.

For a triangle where the length of all three sides are known, use Heron's formula to obtain square feet. Heron's formula is:

The square root of (s (s-a) (s-b) (s-c)). "s" is the semiperimeter and is obtained by: 0.5 (a + b + c); where a, b and c are the lengths of each particular side.

As I don't know BBCode, maybe someone here can write this formula using code? Spider?
