Is the the shape?

YES, ITS JUST DRAWN OUT OF PROPORTION THE MEASUREMENTS ARE CORRECT
Expert:  John D replied 6 years ago.

The square footage of that shape can be found by dividing the lot into two triangles, finding the area of each, then adding up the two areas.

Triangle 1 - right angle triangle sides 78 and 225

Area = height x base / 2 = 225*78/2 = 8,775 ft2

Next we need to find the length of the diagonal line which is the the hypotenuse D of the right angle triangle:

D^2 = 225^2 + 78^2 = 50,625 + 6,084 = 56,709

D = SQRT(50,709) = 238.14 ft

Triangle 2

Since we now have the 3 sides, i.e. 125, 213. and 238.14, the area can be found using the triangle area formula:

(Area)² = s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) where s=(a+b+c)/2

Applying this formula, the area of triangle 2 is 13,269.36 ft2

Therefore total area of plot = 8,775 + 13,269.36 = 22,044.36 square feet.

Hope this helps.

SORRY, SOMEONE ELSE ALREADY ANSWERED, HOWEVER THE TWO ANSWERS ARE NOT THE SAME ABOUT TWO THOUSAND SQ. FT. DIFFERENT
Expert:  John D replied 6 years ago.

But you posted this as a separate question. Besides the first question you posted was incorrect.

Tom, I just re-checked my answer, and I confirm it is the correct answer. Do you want me to send you the calculation detail?

Thanks
