because you cannot draw a perfect 8000 sq ft. with the software. it doesn't draw like a square at once or a rectangle. it is a polyline and that is hard. Can it be more than 8000? other than that you need to draw a square that is 89.442719099999159 on each side. just imposible

+/- 10% acceptable; +/- 5% better
it can be an irregular shape

That would be 800 s.f. from the required size. :o It's VERY easy to draw it and get within 5 s.f., and it can be any shape.

They make mistakes there just like they do in their study guides.
Is there a valid reason not to get much closer to 8000 s.f.?
