When I calc my estimates although Bob is correct I round the figures up to the nearest 1,000 sq ft.

43,560 --> 44m/sf = 1 acre
32,670 --> 33m/sf = 3/4 acre
21,780 --> 22m/sf = 1/2 acre
10,890 --> 11m/sf = 1/4 acre

The other thing which I do when structuring my pricing formulas is to round the numbers for pricing ONLY. I have it broken up into 250sf per m/sf.

Say your bidding lots that are between 5-6m/sf:
If the total turf area measured up to 5,250sf it would then be priced at the 5m/sf price ...
If the total turf area measured between 5,251sf and 5,500sf it would then be priced at the 5,500/sf price ...
If the total turf area measured between 5,551sf and 5,750sf it would then be priced at the 5,750/sf price ...
If the total turf area measured between 5,751sf and 6m/sf it would then be priced at the 6m/sf price ...

Hope this helps.
