Infinite combinations of length/width will result in 5 acres. Some exampes to consider:
If you assume it is a square piece of property, then it is 467 feet on each side.
If you assume it is a long rectangular piece of property with say, 100 feet on the road, then the sides would be 2187 feet long.
when does it make sense to choose a linear function to model a set of data
No. An exponential function is not linear. A very easy way to understand what is and what is not a linear function is in the word, "linear function." A linear function, when graphed, must form a straight line.P.S. The basic formula for any linear function is y=mx+b. No matter what number you put in for the m and b variables, you will always make a linear function.
A measure of the length will be in linear units. So make sure that the measurement is made or expressed in metres.
The solution of a system of linear equations is a pair of values that make both of the equations true.
The standard notation is to make y the dependent variable in linear regression.
A square-shape plot of land that is five acres would have four sides each measuring 466.69 feet long.
A plot of land is defined by its length and widthassuming it's rectangular. More complicated shapes require more dimensions to accurately define it.
The US has 2,428,224,640 acres of land.
5 acres of land make a football park
You can't tell the linear dimensions from the area. There are an infinite number of shapes that all have the same area. Even if you only consider rectangles, there are still an infinite number of rectangles, all with different dimensions, that all have areas of 2.5 acres. The only thing you know for sure from the area is the area. 2.5 acres = 108,900 square ft. The shortest possible length of fence to enclose 2.5 acres occurs when the plot is a square, 330-ft = 1/16th of a mile on a side. For the square, you need 1,320-ft of fence. For 2.5 acres in any rectangular shape: -- Pick one dimension. Call it 'D' in feet. -- The other dimension is (108,900 / D) feet. -- You'll need (2D + 217,800/D) feet of fence to enclose it.
ok - I was just looking for the same thing for the same reason and think I have come up with the answer. Assuming your 5 acres is rectanguar (2 acres accross and 2.5 acres deep) the dimensions should roughly be 416' x 520' (based on an acre being 208' and not an Irish acre which is about 60% larger than a US acre). I calculated a perimeter of 1,872', and at the cheapest I have found white vinyl fencing at $4.81 per foot - this works out to be just over $9,000!!! Think I'll start saving now :-(
