    In order to calculate the area we need the length times the width, or we at least need to know they are the same width!

    We need to take the ratio of the two areas, for example if one field was 8 sqft and the other was 4 sqft, the ratio is 8/4, or 2:1 where we would say the filed was 2x the other field.

    You may want to check the math, I think it's closer to 6400 for the football field! But anyways we would say 13000/6400 = x Then the soccer field's area is x times as large as the football field.

    Roughly yes. I'm not sure how accurate you need to be, but yes it is \[\approx\] 2.03
