area calculation annotation

i have a closed shape that i would like to get the area of. i know there is a "measure area" tool and that gives me acres or sq ft. a while back we used to use a tool that would annotate the area of the closed object.

i also found in inroads how to do an "area" of an element which is what im trying to do with microstation but i dont know how to get inroads to divide that area (sq. ft.) by 9. the attached image is me trying to get it to divide the area by 9 and annotate the result.

if someone could help id appreciate it.
