What dimensions?

IF the parcel were a perfect square, the dimensions of 150 acres in feet would be 2556.17 by 2556.17.

To calculate the linear feet of each side of a parcel of land (that is perfectly square): square root (acres * 43,560)

However, very few land parcels are laid out in neat little squares like a checker board. Although the question doesn't specify a shape for the land parcel in question, it's an inherent part that needs to be addressed before the question can be given a viable answer.
