NFL football fields could fit in Africa

Africa is the world's second-largest continent, with an area of approximately 30.37 million square kilometers or 11.7 million square miles. An NFL football field measures 120 yards long (including end zones) by 53.3 yards wide, or about 6,400 square yards.

To determine how many NFL football fields could fit in Africa, we need to divide the total area of the continent by the area of a single football field.

First, let's convert the total area of Africa from square kilometers to square yards by multiplying by 1.196e+12 (the number of square yards in a square kilometer):

30.37 million sq. km x 1.196e+12 sq. yards/sq. km = 3.63e+19 sq. yards

Next, we divide the total area of Africa by the area of a single football field:

3.63e+19 sq. yards ÷ 6,400 sq. yards/field = 5.67e+15 football fields

Therefore, approximately 5.67 quadrillion NFL football fields could fit in Africa.

How Many Football Fields Could Fit in Africa?

Africa in total can fit 5.67 quadrillion NFL football fields inside the countries total area.

First example: Calculating how many NFL football fields African countries can fit lets start with one of Africa's most popular tourist destinations, Kenya.

One square mile can hold 484 football fields, Kenya total area is 224,080 sq mile which equals 108,454,720 football fields.
Second example: In the USA there are 32 professional football team stadiums. Kenya can fit over 108.4 million -108,454,236 to be exact- professional NFL football stadium fields inside the countries total area.

To determine how many NFL football fields fit into the United States, we need to divide the total area of the country by the area of a single football field.

First, let's convert the total area of the United States from square miles to square yards by multiplying by 1,760 (the number of yards in a mile):
3.797 million sq. miles x 1,760 sq. yards/mile x 1,760 sq. yards/mile = 12.15 trillion sq. yards

Next, we divide the total area of the United States by the area of a single football field:
12.15 trillion sq. yards ÷ 6,400 sq. yards/field = 1.89 billion football fields

Therefore, approximately 1.89 billion NFL football fields could fit into the United States of America.
