Few lots are exact squares or rectangles. This calculator will tell you the size of an odd shaped lot in
acres (or hectares), as long as it has four sides. Enter the length of each side in feet (or meters) in the
respective Units boxes. When you click the Calculate button, it will return the square area in the same
units. Also, depending upon which radio button you set, it will return the acres (which requires feet) or
hectares (which requires meters).
This calculator uses Brahmagupta's Formula, A = SqRt[(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)(s-d)] where a, b, c and d are
the lengths of the four sides of the quadrilateral, and s = (a + b + c + d)/2. You can learn more about
Brahmagupta's Formula here.
