An acre is 43,560 square feet.

A standard block is 100 yards by 100 yards or 90,000 square feet.

The minimal size for a buildable lot is usually at least 50 feet by
100 and something feet.

25 x 100 = 2500 2500 / 43560 = x
ft x ft sqft sqft sqft/acre fractional part of acre
or number of acres & the remainder
