A common misconception about the unit of measure known as the acre is that it must be a square or rectangle. It doesn't have to be. It could be a circle, ellipse, or triangle. It could be some other polygon, or it might even be an irregular shape of some kind. For this question, we will assume from the way it's worded that the area is a rectangle. To determine a rectangle's area, you must multiply its length by its width. In this case, we know the rectangle's area and width, so if we divide the area by the width, we can determine its length. An acre is equal to 43,560 square feet. If we divide that by 300 feet, we are left with 145.2 feet. Note that the area is in square feet but our answer is in plain-old feet. That's because the length is a measure of distance, not area. If you multiply two distances in feet, your answer is an area in square feet.
