    Thanks for your prompt response. It is much appreciated.Unfortunately, I don't have them. But I forgot to mention this is a multiple choice question. I have provided the answer options below:

    (a) 1250mē

    (b) 1450mē

    (c) 1550mē

    (d) 2000mē

    Well you'll have to estimate the answer, heres a hint, each full square is 100m^2

    So estimate how many full squares you have all together, you might count some as halves or quarters etc.
