 I have 4.3 acres. My property is 650 feet wide. What is the other length? be

Hi James,

There are 43,560 square feet in an acre so your property is $4.3 \times 43,560 = 187,308$ square feet. If it is a rectangle then the area is the length times the width and hence the length of your property is

$\frac{187308}{650} = 288.2 \mbox{ feet}$
