Square Footage Calculator Information

A few tips: If an area is rectangular, the square footage calculation is simple: Round each measurement up to the nearest foot or half foot. Then, multiply length times width. For triangular and circular areas, the square footage calculation is typically more complicated.

To figure the area of a circle, multiply 3.14 (pi) times the square of the radius (the distance from the center of the circle to the circle's outside edge or circumference). To figure the area of a right triangle (that is, a triangle with one 90-degree angle), multiply 0.5 times the base (the short line attached to the right angle) times the height (the long line attached to the right angle). Or, just fill in the blanks above. If an area is irregularly shaped, divide it up into rectangles and right triangles as precisely as possible. Figure the area of each rectangle or triangle, and add up all the figures.
