Math isn't one of my strong suits. I have a problem with very large numbers. Perhaps you can help me. The LAND AREA of the world is, according to the almanac, an area of about 57,800,000 square miles. That's length times width. 7600 L x 7600W = 57,760,000 sq. miles.
How many SQUARE FEET is that? 7,600 L x 5280 = 40,128,000 feet. Multiplied by itself 40.128 million feet by 40.128 million feet = 1,610,000,000,000 square feet.
14,000,000,000 square feet.
5280 ft. x 5280 ft. = 27,878,400 sq. ft. = 1 square mile. 14,000,000,000 square feet divided by 27,878,400 sq. feet =
502 ,000 square miles
502,000 sq. miles divided by 57,800,000 square miles (total land area) = about .00087%
(IF CORRECT) OUR HUMAN POPULATION COULD THEORETICALLY
STAND ON JUST .00087% OF THE TOTAL LAND AREA
(1) Did I get the math right?
(2) If human beings have such a little footprint on the
earth's land area, and obviously an even smaller footprint
compared to the total world land area, (where 70% or so of
