One acre is equal to

**43 560**square feet. One lot that is 2 feet by 3 feet is equal to 6 square feet. So a quick approximation to the answer is: how many times does 6 go into**43 560**? This will give the correct answer if there is no "wastage".

In respect to this, how many city lots are in an acre?

Depends on the size of the **lots**. I have lived on a 1/4 **acre lot** which means at most excluding streets there are 4 **lots** in an **acre**. I have lived on a 1700 square foot **lot** which would imply a maximum of 25 **lots** ( in reality with streets more like 18 **lots**.

**acre**is 43560 square feet so half an

**acre**is 43560/2 = 21780 square feet. If your

**1/2 acre**plot of land is a square with area 21780 square feet then each side is of length √21780 feet.

Secondly, how many feet are in a lot of land?

43,560 feet

**Acre** Measurements Any area of 43,560 square feet is an **acre**.
