# maths question for all those good with numbers!

I just cant work out how to begin working this one out!

ok I have made a 50 metre square with netting (or as close to square as the 50 metre roll would go!)

what i need to know is how many square feet are within my square???

ok its a roll of poultry netting and there was 50 metres on the roll,i used this to make a square enclosure to split up some chickens,its the inside area of this enclosure in square feet that i wanted to find out

or should i say "floor space" within the enclosure

But how wide is the roll?

50 metres long 1.2 metres high

12.5m = 41.01ft so the sq ft = 41.01 x 41.01

=1681.9 sq ft

50 divided by 4 (Walls) = 12.5 x 12.5 to get sq m = 156sq m

*Edit I converted after getting sq m.

Area = 12.5*12.5 metres squared = 156.25 m2

1m= 3.28 feet

Therefore, 156.25*3.28*3.28= 1681 ft squared

And I've seen my mistake. D'oh. Should have converted to feet first then wouldn't have suffered looking like a fool

1681ft will work only for the first one

third one is = 1097feet

second one is 12.5+1.2 x 12.5 x 3.28 squared = 1358 square feet
