How many square feet are in .027 acres? Cory Lee  elementary  student 

Hi Cory Lee, I used my dictionary to look up how mant square feet there are in an acre. There are 43,560 square feet in an acre. You have only a small fraction of an acre, 0.027 of an acre. If you write 0.027 as a common fraction you get ^{27}/_{1000}, so if you divided an acre into onethoudand equal size pieces, you would have 27 of them. That is ^{27}/_{1000}one acre or ^{27}/_{1000}43,560 square feet which is 1176.12 square feet. Penny
