## How Can You Calculate the Total Area in Square Feet?

If you don’t know how to calculate the Total Area in square feet, all you must do is draw your site on a piece of graph paper, using one square to represent each foot. If your site contains portions that are not square, divide the area into combinations of rectangles, triangles and circles. Use the following formulas, and then add together all areas. Use this value in the Total Area box above.

• Rectangle Area = length x width
• Circle Area = 3.1416 x the square of the radius
• Triangle Area = 1/2 x length of base x length of height
