To Halve and Halve Lot

Lot 17 shown below is to be divided into two equal halves (by area) using a division line. The division line is to start at the midpoint of the southwesterly line, travel 235.00 ft perpendicularly northeast, then along a tangent circular arc to the right.

Determine the radius of the arc needed to create the two Lot halves. Compute to 0.1 ft.

10  2 4 16 18  Dave Tlusty 12/27/16  Dave’s radius was low which imbalanced the two halves by a few thousand square feet.
            Not one to leave a challenge unfulfilled, Dave re-did the problem and came up with the correct answer (215.6 ft) by trial and error. He gets another 2 points for persistence.
