You need to know one of the dimensions.
Unless the land is a perfect square, you need to know at least one dimension in addition to the area. Either the length or width, and you can calculate the other.

An acre of land is 208' by 208'
A 10 acre piece 2 acres deep (416') would have a length of 5 acres (1040') dividing it in half along its length would leave you two peices of land roughly 416' by 520'

The Property I Am Looking At Is Not Square But More Of A Triangle Area. The Footage On Each Side Is As Follows:
Side A= 1930 Feet Side B= 1676 Feet Side C= 2316 Feet How Do You Figure Acreage?

Re: i need help fast on how to figure acres
Do you want ot end up with two triangles, or one triangle, and one triangle shape with the top chopped off? I can't remember what this shape is called, sorry. You might be best to draw the original, complete shape to scale on a peice of paper, with the correct dimensions and angles for each side, and then draw a line where you want the disecting line to be. You should then be able to measure the lengths off on your peice of paper. Good luck with this.

Re: i need help fast on how to figure acres
495 feet * 495 feet = 245025 square feet
245025 square foot / 43560 = 5.625 acre

Re: i need help fast on how to figure acres
162 feet * 269 feet = 43578 square feet
Since 1 acre = 43,560 square feet, I would estimate the above and call it 1 acre, though technically its 1.0004 acre.
