Dimensions of quarter-acre lots vary. Square footage is calculated by multiplying the lot length by its width to arrive at the square footage. If the resulting number equals 10, 912.5 square feet, it is truly a quarter-acre lot. Quarter-acre lots inevitably vary in dimension (length times width), but any combination of calculated dimensions count toward the total square footage.
