    One acre = 43,560 square feet.

    Your 125 x 1017.36 x 47.47 x 1017.36 does not make sense. We need to know the length of each leg, what it looks like.

    It sounds like an irregular rectangle, not all corners are 90*.

    You can come close by drawing a rectangular box around it, use graph paper to scale, and then subtract away the areas outside your lot by computing the areas of the right triangles that lie outside the lot lines.

    The area of a right triangle is 1/2 the base times the height (the legs that form the 90* angle).

    I don't know if you can do it like this but I took a rough average of the short leg and the long leg. so roughly 80x135 = 82,800

    So real roughly a little under 2 acres. Or a little over 2 "builder" acres, usually considered 40,000 sq ft.

    You would be correct, none of the corners are 90 degrees, that's part of the reason I posed the question.

    The deed calls for 2 acres and 11 perches, but the measurements on the deed are: 125 feet X 1009.8 feet X 47 1/5 feet X 10048.4 feet, but the new survey is with the previous measurements, and is calculated at 1.9782 acres.

    I might be able to scan, and post the survey drawing.

    Making a 90* rectangle (that you know the area of) around it gives you right angles to work with. It's not perfect, but will come close.

    I think for anyone to give you an exact answer, we would need to know two adjacent angles or two opposite angles, but it's been a long time since high school I don't even remember how to do it.

    Is this a survey plot with compass degrees noted?

    Presuming 3 of the 4 corners are right angles I come up with 2.0140504958677685950413223140496 acres, more or less
