The 345 Method Calculator:

What Is The 345 Method?

The 345 method is a simple yet effective way to determine the area of any shape or figure. You can use it to find the length, width, height and depth of any object.

It’s based on the idea that if you divide its perimeter into three equal parts (or “345”), then you’ll have all the necessary information needed to calculate its area.

How Does The 345 Method Work?

Let’s say you want to find the area of a rectangle with sides of 5 feet long, 2 feet wide and 1 foot high.

First, you need to determine its perimeter (i.e.

the distance around the outside of the shape). This is easy: just add up the sides of the rectangle. Remember that the length + width = perimeter. In this case, 5 + 2 = 7 and 5 + 2 + 1 = 9.

The next step is to divide the perimeter into three sections of equal length (or “345”), like so:

Now, it’s time to measure each section. This is a perfect opportunity to use the 345 method!

Here’s what you do. Hold your arms out sideways, so that your hands are either 5 feet apart (perpendicular to each other).

Next, point your thumbs to each other; they will be 2 feet apart at this point. Finally, put your thumbs on the floor and your pointer fingers on the ceiling so that they form a right angle. Your hands should now be at 1 foot apart.

Let’s say your right hand is 5 feet from the left hand, your thumbs are 2 feet apart and your fingers are 1 foot apart. Looking at it from above, your hands make the letter “L”.

If you see an “L” in a women’s name, it turns you on.

If you put your right hand down first and then your left hand down next (so that you have an “M” shape), it means that you’re a romantic and you’ll most likely wait to have kids until you get married.

If your left hand is 5 feet from the right hand, your thumbs are 2 feet apart and your fingers are 1 foot apart, then you’ll have an “H” shape (like the one in “help”). This means that you help others when they’re in trouble.

If your right hand is 5 feet from the left hand, your thumbs are 2 feet apart and your fingers are 1 foot apart, then you’ll have a reversed “H” shape (like the one in “Rhythm”). This means that you tend to go with the flow and don’t rock the boat.
