Three Real Estate Formulas You Need to Know I don't know how much you remember about high school math, but I can assure you that I have never once used the quadratic formula in my day-to-day life or as a real estate agent. I haven't had to find the cosine of an angle or determine the slope of a hyperbolic graph. However, there are some formulas that I use on a very regular basis. Even though anyone can use Google to find a calculator that can quickly calculate what you need, understanding these three simple formulas and how to calculate them will allow you to determine the information you need so you can easily do these on the fly and out in the field.

If built it would have been four times as tall as what was then the world's tallest building "The Empire State Building"... and would be almost twice as tall as today's tallest building the Burj Khalifa. It was proposed to contain space for more than 100,000 people, and have parking space for over 15,000 cars, have 76 elevators with five-story-high cabs delivering passengers to five floors at a time, running at about a mile a minute, which is dramatically faster (almost 3x) than today's fastest modern high-rise elevators.
