Can you tell me how much property (acre) is in the following linear feet?

The property is a pie shape.


wondering how many square feet is involved and if this is actually an acre of property.

I get 25432 sq ft or 0.58 acre.

Solution: Use Heron's formula,
Given three sides, a, b, c
Form s = 0.5(a + b + c)
then area K = SQRT(s*(s-a)*(s-b)*(s-c))
