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.
