and Guatemala spread smoke all the way to

Austin. Those fires consumed forest land at a

rate of 26900 acres/week.

of forest are burned down every minute? An

acre is an area equivalent to that of a rectangle

60.5 yd wide and 80 yd long, there are 36

inches in one yard, and there are 2.54 cm in

one inch.

Answer in units of m2/min
