Re: convert feet to acres
If there are no right angles then the easiest thing is to make 5 triangles, divide each into a right triangle, compute each right triangle (base x height = square feet) then add the 5 together. So you won't be confused, to get the area of a right triangle it is base x height / 2; however you are actually creating 2 identical triangles by making the right triangles because the b side (height) bisects the length of each of your 5 sides, so the sq ft of each of the 5 triangles is two times the sq ft of each right triangle.
