Calculate Square Footage Irregular Shape?

Answer

To calculate the square footage of an irregular shape, you can mentally separate the space into smaller, more rectangular units and calculate each smaller unit separately, then add the smaller amounts together. It often helps to first measure all the different sides and draw them on graph paper. The graph paper helps to visualize the smaller shapes. Measure the length times the width of each of these shapes. Having them on the graph paper makes it easier to avoid leaving out any dimensions.
