Help with Estimating Total Area

  1. Jan 24, 2010 #1
    I have a flat plat that is x by y. It has an unknown number of holes in it but I do know the diameter of the holes is D.

    I also know that s/D = 4 where s is the spacing between holes of diameter D. Using this how can I estimate the total area absent in the flat plat, i.e. the amount missing.

    Thanks.

    This sounds like homework and should be placed accordingly. I apologize.
