## Acreage Calculator

We developed this **acreage calculator** to compute the size of a land area in **acres**. Perimeter acreage calculator allow users to input the dimensions of a property in various units (like **feet**, **meters**, or **yards**) and then **convert **that area into **acres**.

Let’s say you have a rectangular plot of land that measures

300 feet by 150 feet. An acreage calculator would help you determine that this plot is approximately1.03 acres.

## Acreage Calculation Chart

Shape | Formula | Example Dimensions | Acreage |
---|---|---|---|

Rectangle | (Length x Width) / 43,560 | 300 ft x 150 ft | 1.03 acres |

Triangle | (Base x Height) / 87,120 | 400 ft x 200 ft | 0.92 acres |

Circle | (π x r²) / 43,560 | Radius = 120 ft | 1.04 acres |

Irregular | Use GPS coordinates | Varies | Varies |

## Acreage Formula

The basic **acreage calculation formula** converts square feet to acres:

**Acres = Square Feet ÷ 43,560**

This is because one acre equals **43,560 square feet**. For shapes other than rectangles, you first calculate the area in square feet, then divide by **43,560**.

**Calculate the acreage of a triangular plot with a base of 400 feet and a height of 200 feet.**

- Area of triangle = (Base x Height) ÷ 2
- Area = (400 x 200) ÷ 2 =
40,000 sq ft- Acres = 40,000 ÷ 43,560 =
0.92 acres

## How to calculate acreage?

To calculate acreage, follow these steps:

Measure the dimensions of your land in

feet.Calculate the area in square feet based on the shape.

Divide the square footage by

43,560to get the acreage.

You have an **L-shaped property** composed of two rectangles. One measures **200 ft x 100 ft**, and the other is **100 ft x 50 ft**.

- Area of first rectangle:
**200 x 100 = 20,000 sq ft** - Area of second rectangle:
**100 x 50 = 5,000 sq ft** - Total area:
**20,000 + 5,000 = 25,000 sq ft** - Acreage:
**25,000 ÷ 43,560 = 0.57 acres**
