## How Many Miles in a Perfect Square Block of 10 Acres:

• Each side is 0.125 miles or 1/8 of a mile (660 feet / 201 metres) long

If you have a perfect square block of land and it is 10 acres area that equals to equal sides of 0.125 miles x 0.125 miles (1/8 mile x 1/8 mile).

## How Many Miles is in 10 Acres of Football Fields:

Take a look at how many feet and miles are in that area in the chart below:

## Calculating How Many Miles in 10 Acres of Football Fields Stacked On Top Of Each Other:

• 1 football field is 360 feet x 160 feet
• Stacking 8 football fields makes just over 10 acres
• For the length: 360 feet x 8 = 2,880 feet (0.545 miles)
• For the width: 160 feet x 1 = 160 feet (0.03 miles)

## Calculating How Many Miles in 10 Acres of Football Fields Grouped 4 Across:

## How Many Miles in 10 Acres if it is Only a 1 Foot Wide Path:

• 10 acres is 435,600 square feet
• So a 1 foot wide path would need to be 435,600 feet long to be 10 acres
• 435,600 feet is 82.5 miles long
• So a 1 foot path would be 82.5 miles long to make it 10 acres area
