9 square feet = 1 square yard

1 acre = 43,560 square feet = 4840 square yards #### Square or Rectangle

Area = Length x Width

Example

A = 90 x 60

A = 5400 square feet #### Circle

A = Π x R 2 Π = 22/7

Example

A = 22/7 x 20 ' x 20'

A = 1256 square feet #### Ovals or Egg Shapes

Area = Length x Width at Midpoint x .8

A = .8 LW

Example

A = .8 x 80 x 40

A= 2560 square feet #### Triangle

Area = 1/2 x Base x Height

A = 1/2 BH

A = 1/2 x 60 x 120

A = 3600 square feet #### Irregular Shapes Within 5% Accuracy

A = (AA + BB + CC) x 10

Example

A = (40 + 60 + 32) x 10

A = 132 x 10

A = 1320 square feet #### Unusual Shaped Areas

Calculations can be made for various sections. For this example:

Area of triangle

Area of rectangle

1/2 Area of circle

• #### Weight

 1 metric ton = 1.102 US tons (short ton) 1 kilogram (kg) = 2.205 pounds (lb) 1 gram (g) = .030327 ounce (oz) 1 dram = 20 grains 1 ounce (oz) = 16 drams 1 pound (lb) = 16 ounces (oz)

#### Area

 1 hectare (ha.) = 107,640 sq. ft. = 2.47 acres 1 sq, meter (m) = 10.76 sq. ft. 1 sq. centimeter (cm) = 0.1549 sq. in. 1 sq. mile = 640 acres = 259 hectares 1 acre = 43,560 sq. ft. = 0.4047 hectares 1 sq. ft. = 0.929 sq. meters 1 sq. in = 6.452 sq. centimeters 1 sq. ft = 144 sq. in 1 sq. yd. = 9 sq. ft.

#### Length

 1 kilometer (km) = 0.6214 miles 1 meter (m) = 3.281 feet 1 meter = 39.37 inches 1 centimeter (cm) = 0.3937 inches 1 millimeter (mm) = 0.03937 inches 1 mile = 1.609 kilometers = 5,280 ft.or 1,760 yards 1 foot = 0.3048 meters 1 inch = 2.540 centimeters

#### Liquid

 1 teaspoon = 1/6 fl. oz. 1 tablespoon = 3 teaspoons = 1/2 fl. oz. 1 fl.oz. = 2 tablespoons = 6 teaspoons 1 cup = 8 fl.oz. 1 pint = 2 cups = 16 fl. oz. 1 quart = 2 pints = 4 cups = 64 fl. oz. 1 gallon = 4 quarts = 8 pints =16 cups = 128 fl. oz.

#### Temperature

 (degrees Celsius x 1.8)+ 32 = degrees Fahrenheit (degrees Fahrenheit -32)x .055 = degrees Celsius
