Is the Saharan desert as large as Texas?

    Yes. The size of the Libyan Sahara Desert is comparable to the state of Texas and accounts for nearly two-thirds of all of Egypt’s land.

    The area of Texas is 696,241 km2 while the Sahara is 9,000,000 kms2. So the Sahara is actually almost 150% larger than Texas.

    The figures for square km for Texas and the Sahara are correct, but the additional math is not. At 9 million sq km, the Sahara is 12 times the size of Texas (1200%, not 150%). The Sahara is nearly as large as the entire United States including Alaska.

    The Libyan Desert mentioned in the other answer is a small sub-set of the entire Sahara.
