43,560 square feet in acre X?(times) 40 =

Assuming the shape you want is a square, do the following.

43,560 square feet X(times) 15 now find the square root of that.

sqr( 43,560 X 15) = length of side

The units on a problem should always pass through the math the same.
For instance square root of square feet equals feet along one side.

This is my acre question. How manay acres does it take to feed a famliy of four. People from a city think in terms of people per square block. Astronauts cubic feet when it is considered. But to feed what lives in space would change all that.
