What sequence of numbers do you use to square a 48x32 building. I know 12L x 16W = 20. Just not sure how you do a 48x32 Would appreciate your help. Thank you

Square with respect to what? The floor plan? The concrete? The walls?

any multiple of (3-4-5) will give your square. in your case I'd go (18-24=30)

Must be a pole barn since the width and length are backwards. If you are looking for a 3/4/5 rule (hypotenuse of a right triangle) go with 30/40/50 that will get you the closest.
