    Default Area Calculation

    In the attached drawing there are two shapes. I am trying to scale the one on the right to match the one on the left. The dwg units are Arch. I would like to make them both have the same square feet area but I can't figure out the scale factor. I am using Autocad Map 2004.

    Please point me in the right direction.

    Thanks.

    Here you are.

    Method - divide area of one shape by the area of the other. Scale second shape by the sqr root of the result.
