You don't have to figger: a square acre has a perimeter of 208.7 fett on all four sides. But you can find the square root of the 43560 square feet inside an acre to get the perimeter measuremnets.

208.71 feet (to 2 decimal places).

There are 43,560 square feet in one acre so take the length times the width in feet and divide by that figure to find the number or fraction of an acre. If the property is irregular, take length times width of each roughly rectangular chunk and add them together before dividing.

'Acre' is a unit of area or coverage. 'Mile' is a unit of length or distance. 'Acre' and 'mile' measure different quantities; neither can be converted to the other. If you want to talk about 1 square mile ... a square that measures 1 mile on all sides ... that square covers 640 acres.

One acre = 4840 square yards, or (4840 x 9) square feet.

It depends on the number of sides and the length of each side that compose that one acre, which is 43,560 square feet..If one acre is a square (two-dimensional figure with four straight sides, whose four interior angles are right angles and whose four sides are of equal length), each side is 208.7103 linear feet (square root of 43,560). The perimeter would be 834.8413 linear feet (208.7103*4).If one acre was a circle, the circumference (perimeter) would be 739.8588 linear feet.Another example would be a rectangle that is not a square.If two parallel sides of the rectangle are 25 LF each, the other two parallel sides would be 1742.4 LF each (43560/25). The perimeter of one acre is now 3534.8 feet ((1742.4*2)+(25*2)).All three examples would be one acre but the perimeter has changed for each.

The 4 sides of a rectangular 40 acre parcel total one mile. Therefore the length and width of a square 40 acre parcel would each be 1320 feet (5280/4).

There's no way to even compare the 'foot' to the 'acre'. 'Foot' is a unit of length, but 'acre' is a unit of area. If length units could be converted to area units, then it would be possible for you (or maybe someone you know) to figure out how many acres you have to drive from Dallas to Miami.

An acre is equivalent to 43,560 sq.ft.

If a square lot of equal sides length, the total would be 10,890 square feet.

An acre is defined as 43,560 square feet; the sides of a square having that area would be the square root of that number, or about 208 feet 9 inches.

acre is area length x width so it depends on the length as to how wide it is
