Harley Scott wrote back Yes that's it. Sorry I didn't explain it better. Scott, An acre is 43,560 square feet so if you have a square with area one acre and each side is x feet long then
so
Hence the radius of the inscribed circle is 208.71/2 = 104.36 feet. What is the area of a circle with radius 104.36 feet? Subtract this from 43,560 square feet to find the area of the corner pieces. Harley
