 Question from Peggy: How many acres in 2700' circumference or perimeter

Hi Peggy,

The answer to your question depends on the shape of the lot.

For example:

If it is a square then each side is of length $\large \frac{2700}{4} \normalsize = 675$ so the area is $675 \times 675 = 455,625$ square feet.

If the lot shape is a circle then the area is 580,119 square feet.

If the lot is a rectangle measuring 750 feet by 600 feet then its area is 450,000 square feet.

I'm sorry but without knowing the shape I can't answer your question,
Penny
