Hi I am looking to purchase a piece of property, and I need some help trying to figure out the square footage of the land. I know that normally if I multiply the length and width I could get my answer. However, this piece of land is an odd shape and has 3 measurements. Can you please help me. My name is Linda I am a consumer The measurements for this piece of land is: 97.8' 201.2' 139.7' Thank you for your help. Linda 

Hi Linda, If the piece of land is in the shape of a triangle, that is the three sides are straight lines, then I can find the area for you. There is an expression called Heron's Formula that expresses the area of a triangle in terms of the lengths of the three sides. When I used you dimensions I got an area of 6,208.37 square feet.
