Here is a handy conversion calc.

http://www.ez-calculators.com/land_acre ... ulator.htm

One acre is 43,560 Sq/Ft.

If Sq. the length and width would be 435,600 Ft.

L x W = SQ/FT.

435,600 x 435,600 = 871,200sq/ft.

871,200 divided by 43,560 = 20 acres. ;-)

Approximately 933 feet for each side of the square will get you very close to 20 acres (870,489 suare feet as compared to 871,200 square feet per 20 acres)

ya i goofed my first post was right

20 acres is 871,200sq/ft

the formulas are right though!

20 acres is 871,200sq/ft

the formulas are right though!

A circle encloses the most area with the least circumference.(least wire). A long skinny rectangle encloses less area(more wire). A square encloses more than a skinny rectangle and less than a circle with the same amount of wire.

Might be easier to just halve the back forty.

I get 208.71033 feet to a side equals 43560.001 sq. ft.Z
