    Like with land anywhere else on this earth, the cost will always depend on location, location, and location.

    Well, Malaysia is comprised of Eastern Malaysia (insular), and Western Malaysia (peninsular.) Malaysians don't measure parcels of land using "acres." Malaysians use the Metric System, and in some areas they use traditional units of measurement. One hectare is roughly 2.5 acres, so 20 acres would be approximately 8 hectares. To find out how much an acre of land is worth - which you'd need to know if you wanted to know how much 20 acres is worth, you'd have to figure out how much an acre-sized piece of property is going for. Obviously land prices are going to fluctuate across the country. Generally, land is pricier on the peninsula than it is on Borneo and land that's closer to the sea is pricier than land that's farther from the coast, but there's no set average for the country as a whole. The same is true of every country in the world. 20 acres abutting the Kuala Lumpur city limits or along the coast of Kota Kinabalu is going to be more expensive than 20 acres of undeveloped swampland.

    As in the USA or in Europe, the price of land in any part of Malaysia depends on the use it can be put to. Land on the edges of cities is very pricey, as it is in any part of the world, because it is valuable for housing. Land a long distance from a city and which would be expensive to develop even for agriculture (rocky, steep hills, etc) is worth almost nothing.

    I question the wisdom of anybody who set that question in such bald terms for homework.

    That depends. Is it swampy land out in the boondocks, or is it land with huge skyscrapers on it in Kuala Lumpur?

    Like anywhere else it all depends on the location. I found land listed there that was selling for $1,180 per acre and I found land that was selling for over $448,000 for a single acre.

    This is impossible to answer since we have no way knowing the land's value and in ringgit

    No idea. We would need to know the price of the land in Malasian money, then we could locate the exchange rate.
