Hi Walker,

A acre is a measure of area and is 43 560 square feet. It can be any shape, for example a rectangle, circle or triangle as long as the area is 43 560 square feet. If you want a square as is indicated by your question, (x ft. by x ft.), then a square 208.7 ft. by 208.7 ft. is approximately one acre.
