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.

I have a lot almost shape like an L but has five sides that measure 63.12meter,6.35m, 26.60m, 70m and 71.83m.
Can anyone help me find the this lot size in square meter or give me the formula to do it?

If you made a (scaled) model of the figure with sticks connected by pins at the corners, you would see it is not rigid (a triangle is, but not figures with 4 or more sides). Additional info is necessary to specify the shape.

You either need to specify the angles in the corners, or specify the direction bearings of each of those sidelines (should show on the drawing on the deed). Also be sure sure specify the sides in traverse order, that is as you walk around the property from a point of beginning, all the way back to the same point.

Without that added info, no way to calculate.
