First, determine the area of a football field. Remember that the end zones are part of the area. Second, determine the area of a stamp. Third, make sure your units are the same. You will have to convert from square yards to square inches or from square inches to square yards. Last, divide the area of the football field by the area of the stamp. The result is the number of stamps required to cover the field.

The area of any rectangle is the product of its length and width: A = l x w. There are 144 square inches per square foot, and nine square feet per square yard.

How are stamps made?

postage stamp is made from (usually special) paper with a national designation and denomination on the face and most often with a gum adhesive on the reverse side and is used as evidence of payment of postage. Postage stamps are purchased from a postal administration, or other authorized vendor and are applied to mail and used to pay for mailing services and sometimes to pay for other postal services like insurance and registration. The stamp's shape is usually that of a small rectangle of varying proportions. The stamp is affixed to an envelope, or other postal cover (i.e., packet, box, mailing cylinder) which is then processed by the postal system where a postmark is usually applied over the stamp and cover which cancels the stamp preventing its reuse. The postmark usually indicates the date and point of origin of the mailing. The mailed item is then delivered to the address indicated on the envelope or cover. Postmarks have been applied over stamps since the first postage stamps came into use. [
