it takes 640 acres to make a square mile. 42 acres = .15625 square miles an acre is approx 208.71 feet squared if you had 42 acres end to end, you would have a piece of land that is 1 acre x 42 acres deep or approx 208.71 feet wide x 5009.05 feet deep, which would equal about .039 miles x .95 miles deep. hope this helps
9,000 square miles is about 95 x 95 miles. It is also equivalent to 5,760,000 acres or about 23,310 square kilometers. It's a little bit bigger than the state of New Jersey, but not quite as big as New Hampshire. It's about the same size as Belize (in Central America) or Djibouti (in eastern Africa).
