Hi Roger,
A square metre is 100 centimeters by 100 centimeters so 2800 square meters is 28000000 square centimeters. There are 2.54 centimeters in an inch so this is
^{28000000}/_{(2.54 2.54)} = 4340008.7 square inches.
There are 12 inches in a foot and hence 4340008.68 square inches is
^{4340008.68}/_{(12 12)} = 30138.0 square feet.
Finally there are 43560 square feet in an acre so 2800 sq meters is
^{30138.0}/_{43560} = 0.69 acres
Thus the land area is approximately twothirds of an acre.
