Area Calculations  
The Area Calculator will allow you to enter measurements to determine the total the square feet or square meters of an area. To make use of the calculator, you must first divide an area into sections. The following illustration depicts a flower bed divided into eight (8) different sections. In this example you will use all of the features of the calculator to total the square feet of each area. 

Begin by calculating the circular area of section #1: 



Continue by calculating the area of a rectangle: 



Now add the area of a triangular shape: 



You should now have a total of 122.57 square feet. Continue by adding areas #4 and #6 as rectangles and areas #5, #7 and #8 as triangles. Once all areas are entered you should have a total flower bed area of 294.57 square feet. At any time during the process you can click on the Clear Areas button under the Added Areas header to remove all entries from the list.
