Who is asking: Student Level: Middle Question: 

Hi, Miles and acres measure entirely different things. Miles are units of length and acres are units of area. There is a connection between acres and SQUARE miles. If you think of a piece of land in the shape of a square and measures one mile on each side then its area is one square mile. In terms of acres the area is 640 acres.
