One section equals one square mile and that equals 640 acres. However, keep in mind that sections are not always nice and square. Due to the various surveyors who performed the original surveys, the geology and uneven surface of the earth, its curvature and the failure of neighboring sections to "butt up" perfectly, there may be variations and overlaps that may shorten/lengthen subsections.
