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.

A four sided figure is not fixed by just the lengths of the sides. You also need the angles in the corner, or the bearing angles of each side. The bearing angles are normally recorded on the plat or drawing of the lot, an angle in degrees, minutes, seconds, preceded by N or S, followed by E or W.

We need to know where on the figure you are starting, and whether you are going clockwise or counterclockwise, give each side length and direction as you go around (or traverse) the figure.

Without the angles, all we can tell is that it is somewhere between 0 and 30184 sq. ft.
