A person owns a 146.8 acre farm which received a total of 1.64 inches of rain. How many liters of rain would that be? An acre is 43560 square feet; there are 2.54 cm in one 1 inch.

1.64 inches equal .13666666 feet

yea but it asking for liters

59531.99999 ft cubed is equal to 1685759 liters

in the problem though wouldnt the acres equal 6394608 cubic feets

no...bc there is no depth with in an acre, only area, there is no volume, onceyou had the rain, an inch everyhwere, you now have depth

well than can you plz help me answer this question because it involves the same principle from the previous question
A person owns a 170.3 acre farm which received a total of 2.70 inches of rain. How many liters of rain would that be? An acre is 43560 square feet; there are 2.54 cm in one 1 inch. 
7418268 ft^2 x .225 ft of rain = 1669110 ft^3 = 47263930 Liters

1 acre = 43560 ft^2.
1.64 inches = 1.64/12 = feet.
1728 cubic inches = 1 cubic foot
231 cubic inches = 1 gallon
3.78 liters = 1 gallon
146.8 acres x (43560 ft^2/acre) x (1.64/12) x (1,728 in^3/ft^3) x (1 gallon/231 ft^3) x (3.78 liters/gallon) = ??
Check my thinking. Check my work.
