how many acres ?

Postby clms101 » Sat Feb 23, 2008 3:15 am

I own land that is almost a square. It is 1613 on one side, 2016 on the other, 1430 on the front and 1385 on the back. Can you please tell me how many acres this is? The measurement is in feet.

An acre is a square that measures 208.7ft on all sides.

Your property as given is a quadrilateral, meaning it doesn't conform to the rules of a square, rectangle, trapezoid, rhombus, or parallelogram. Because the shapes mentioned have specific properties, the area formulas are the same for all cases.

But because a quadrilateral can be anything else, there isn't a general formula.

If you could give just one more bit of information, such as the length of a diagonal, or the angle where one or more of the sides meet, the calculation can be completed!
