As you've already calculated, 60' x 100' is 6000 square feet. Convert square feet to acres:

http://www.convertunits.com/from/square+feet/to/acres

6000 square feet = 0.1377410468322 acres

Then if you want to convert this into a fraction, you can take the inverse:

1 / 0.1377410468322 = 7.26

So that means that:

0.1377410468322 acres = 1/7.26 acres

That tells you that a 60' x 100' lot is between 1/8 and 1/7 of an acre.

1/8 acre = 0.125 acres
1/7 acre = 0.142857 acres

Your lot is closer to 1/7 acre, since it is 1/7.26 acre.
