## How to calculate marlas and kinals

If you want to know about how many marlas or kinals are there in your plot, land or house just follow the following formula.

## The formula

Multiply length with width (in feet) and divide it into 272.

If the length and width of your plot is 74 feet than

Multiply length (74) with width (74): 74 X 74 = 5476

Now divide 5476 to 272: 5476 / 272= 20.13

Note: Remember 272 are the square feet in one marla

It means your plot is of 20 marlas or one kinal.

You have to calculate every plot according to this formula. Remember if two sides of length or width are difference then calculate their average (For average add two measurements and divided them into 2).
