The Alaska Purchase of 1867

The United States purchased Alaska from Russia for $7.2 million, which came to about 2 cents per acre. In 2010 dollars, that's equivalent to a little over $100 million, or about 30 cents per acre.

What is the approx length and width of 23 cents of square land?

Cents, as in money, I assume. Land costs vary a lot from one place to another; it really doesn't make sense to talk about a "typical" value. Once you get the price per square meter in your neighborhood, divide the amount of money you want to spend by the price per square meter, to get the amount of square meters you'll buy. Of course, for $0.23, you'll usually get less than a square meter, and nobody will sell such a small part of a lot. - Also, if you want the land to be a square, once you have figure out the amount of square meters, take the square root to calculate the length of one side of the square.
