    How many acres are in a mile?

    • A.

      320 acres

    • B.

      640 acres

    • C.

      1280 acres

    • D.

      2560 acres

    Correct Answer
    B. 640 acres
    Explanation
    A mile is a linear measure, while an acre is a measure of area. To convert square miles to acres, we use the fact that 1 square mile equals 640 acres. This is derived from the fact that there are 5,280 feet in a mile, and an acre is 43,560 square feet. Therefore:
    1 square mile = (5,280 feet x 5,280 feet) = 27,878,400 square feet.
    To convert square feet to acres: 27,878,400 square feet / 43,560 square feet per acre = 640 acres.
