Per acre cost discrepancy[edit]

828,000 square miles is equal to 529,920,000 acres; $15m usd divided by 529.92m acres = 2.8306 cents per acre, but Library of Congress website lists "approximately four cents an acre". http://history.state.gov/milestones/1801-1829/louisiana-purchase lists 530,000,000 acres and $15m. Neither the size of the area nor the price seem to be in any dispute, but why is the math wrong?-Ich (talk) 19:51, 30 June 2014 (UTC)
