Can someone explain to me how all all carbon atoms in fatty acids...?

...can therefore be derived from only the acetyl group in acetyl-CoA?

    Sure. The acetyl group from the acetyl CoA gets incorporated into the Krebs cycle. There, more carbons are added, and eventually you end up with all kinds of off shoots. You really need to go into depth of the Krebs cycle to understand this fully.
