Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Roy, a parent:

The land parcel I am looking at says Acreage .687 how do I determine square feet?

how do I determine square feet?

The same as for almost any conversion problem except maybe metric-to-metric:

EITHER look up the conversion factor and do whichever of multiplying or dividing gives a sensible answer

OR Go to Google and type in "0.687 acres in square feet."

Good Hunting!
