100 acres is about the size of two football fields.
One acre equals 10,000 square feet, and a football field is 360 feet long and 160 feet wide. So two football fields would be 1.8 million square feet. A typical house lot is about one-tenth of an acre, so if you had 100 houses on 100 lots, it would be the same area as 100 acres.
A football field is about 10 yards wide and 100 yards long, which means there are 10,000 square yards in a football field. If you divide that by 1 acre (10,000 square feet), you get 100 acres.
