To estimate the square feet in 138 acres use front end rounding to approximate the number of square feet in one acre and to approximate the number of acres. $43,560 \approx 40,000$ $138 \approx 100$ Then multiply the approximate square feet per acre by the approximate number of acres. $40,000 \times 100 = 4,000,000$ To find the exact number of square feet in 138 acres, multiply 138 by the number of square feet per acre. $138 \times 43,560 = 6,011,280$
