Sections, area and acres 
20040323 

From Tony: An acre , it can be any size right . so when they
refer to a section of a township which is 640 acres,
also 1 square mile does this mean that 1 sections
length if sqaure and there is 5,280 ft in 1 mile does
it meanthat if you took 1 side of the square of of 4 sides
the lenth would be 5,280 feet long and by multiplying
5,280 x 5,280 it would give you the square mile in
square feet. i guess what I 'm asking is what is the
perimeter of 1 acre if it was shape like a square.

would appreciate it. Answered by Penny Nom.
