    In US measurements:  

    A Mile is 5280 feet.

    An Acre is 43,560 square feet (or 4,840 square yards)

    One square mile is a SECTION. There are 640 acres in a Section.

    In Metric measurements:

    An Acre is 4,047 square meters.

    5280 x 2= X then divide X by 43,560 sq ft. Assuming your numbers are correct.

    1 acre = 43560/5280

    1 acre = 8.25 mile
