Subject: How to determine square footage of an irregular lot
Name: Lori
Who are you: Student

If I have a rectangular irregular sized lot with the following:

A - 110.53'
B - 159.87'
C - 127.28'
D - 165.86'

How do I determine the square footage?


Hi Lori,

Knowing the lengths of the sides alone is not enough information to find the area. A lot with these dimensions could have a different shape than your lot and a different area. There is a more complete description here.

If you have an accurate drawing you may be able to find the area. There is an example in the answer to a previous question.
