agree  Henry Hinds: No sé si es exacta la equivalencia pero se aproxima bastante.

  -> Gracias, Henry. En efecto, no es exacta (le faltarían 71 metros cuadrados) pero calculo que una frase explicativa quedaría un tanto más engorrosa. Saludos...

disagree  Heidi C: La cuerda es una unidad de medida específica, y aunque se aproxime a un acre, no lo es. Especialmente si estás traduciendo una escritura o las medidas de una propiedad, que tienen que ser EXACTAS!!!!

disagree  reinaldo8490: Si estamos hablando de Puerto Rico, la cuerda es una unidad para medir terrenos o fincas.... 1 cuerda equivale a 3,930.39 metros cuadrados, 1 acre es igual 4046.9 metros cuadrados. 1 cuerda en acres equivale a .9712 acres, la cual se usa en USA y no en PR
