E. $150



The first step is to figure out the total number of acres that the farmer wants to rent.

Since we are given that the farmland is a rectangular plot, the area must be 360*605.
The total number of acres is \(\frac{360*605}{43560} = \frac{36*605}{4356} = \frac{605}{121} = 5\)

Therefore, the cost that the farmer pays in a month is \(5*$30 = $150\)(Option E)

By rounding the size of the land to 400 x 600, the land size is approximately 240,000 square feet. That is approximately 5 times 43,000 square feet. So the best answer is definitely E, as the other possible choices are too high.
