From Rosemary: I am an interpreter in our Historical Museum. From what I received, I have always told my guests that when the Connecticut Land Company sold the Western Reserve land, 5 square miles constituted a township. I was corrected yesterday by someone who said it should have been a 5-mile square. What is the difference? Hope you can help. Answered by Penny Nom.
From Rudy: I know that there are 27,878,400 sq ft in a square mile and that there are 640 acres in a sq mile. But how do I figure out the measurement of each acre. If I could make every acre a square what would it's measurement be? Answered by Penny Nom.
How many acres are in .17 square miles? and How many acres are in .6 square miles?
The two areas I am requesting information about are Vatican City and San Marino, the two smallest countries in the world. If I can transfer the sq. miles into acres , I can relate the size of these countries to our school grounds and the students will better understand their sizes.
