The answer is...
+.39 elevation per foot.
Can you express that in ft per hundred ft? Sry I didn't specify earlier. You are correct though
The new answer is...
+39 elevation per 100 feet.
I got 3.89 ft per hundred ft. Whatever. Your turn

Hey Tailsfan, for some reason I can't see your images. I've tried on many different operation systems and computers, and it still won't show. Is there a way you can do a docs link or something next time you post on this subject?

Thanks!

It doesn't work for me either. I am just finding the locations on google earth and then solving it.

My question is: how many square feet is in one township?

A township is a 6x6 arrangement of 1x1 mile sections. So 5280ft times six and then squared, is 1003622400ft squared.

Now for my question: How many acres would be in an entire township?

Little Johnny opens up his topographic map and sees U.S. highway 67. Unfortunately, he is sort of blind so he can't see the direction the highway goes. U.S. Highway 67 runs in what directions?
