Hi my name is Sydney. I am 10 years old and would like your help.

If there are 12100 Sq. Ft in property what would that be acre wise? I know my parents said it is less than 1 acre but what would it be in decimal?

Could you please illustrate the formula on how to figure this out?

Thanks a lot.


Hi Sydney,

According to my dictionary there are 43,560 square feet in an acre, so your parents are correct, 12,100 square feet is less than an acre. to be precise 12,100 square feet is

 12100/43560 = 0.28

so 12,100 is a little more than a quarter of an acre.
