Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Audrey, a parent:

How many feet would be in a 1/2 acre of land.

Hi Audrey.

Do you mean how many "square feet" are in 1/2 an acre? I hope so, because then you are comparing area to area.

Each acre is 43560 square feet, so half of that is half an acre.

Stephen La Rocque.
