Write a Python program that prompts the user for the length and width of a rectangular field (in feet, allowing a fractional part), then calculates and prints the area of the field in acres.  Area = length times width, there are 43,560 square feet in an acre.

You'll need to define a function; do you know how?
You'll need to take an input from the user; Do you know how?
You'll need to make sure the data type of the input is a certain type; do you know what type that is and how to check that the input is that type?
Then you'll need to perform the calculation and print the result; Do you know how?

Give it a shot, and if you can't figure out how to do any of the above steps, let us know. We won't do your homework for you, but we'll help you figure it out.
