Perhaps you meant SQUARE miles. A square foot is a unit of area, whereas the mile is a unit of distance, so you cannot convert square feet to miles. But you can convert square feet to square miles. So let's. One linear mile is equal to 5,280 feet. Hence, one square mile is equal to 5,280 x 5,280 (which is 5,280 squared) = 27,878,400 square feet. Yikes! That's a lotta square feet. You have 170607.096 square feet, so divide that by the number above to get 0.0061196875 square mile. In other words, your area is a tiny fraction of a square mile. (The area you provided is about 3.9 acres.)
