Can you tell me what the approximate width & depth of a ¼ acre pie shaped lot might be?



Hi Linda,

The short answer is no, I can't. The lot might be short and wide or long and thin. To say the area is 1/4 of an acre doesn't give me enough information to estimate the width and depth.

For a smaller example imagine that you cut an 8 inch diameter pizza into 6 equal, pie shaped pieces. The area of each piece is is approximately 8.4 square inches and each piece is 4 inches wide and 4 inches long. Now suppose you want a pie shaped piece from a 12 inch pizza with the same area, 8.4 square inches. This would give a pie shaped piece that is approximately 2.8 inches wide and 6 inches long.
