I have a pile of gravel that is 4' high, 15' length and 12' wide. What is an easy way to calculate square yards?

A yard of material is 3x3x3 so that is 27 cubic feet. you have a pile that is 4x15x12 and that is 720 cubic feet. So divide 720 by 27 and you get 26.66 yards

Measure the length and the width and multiply the two together. So if your bedroom is 15 feet long and 12 feet wide it would be 180 square feet.

If you wanted it in yards, you would divide by 9 so 20 square yards.

If you want to be really accurate you can go as close as 3 inches

3" would be .25

6"would be .5

9" would be .75

so if it was 15 foot 6" x 12 foot 3", you would multiply 15.5 x 12.25.

One of the few things I learned at school in the 1960s that I have used a lot.

We need to convert everything to a common unit, so let's convert the 18 inches into 1.5 feet.

Volume is length times width times height.

v= 132 x 2 x 1.5

v= 396 cubic feet

To convert to cubic yards, imagine a yard cube. It is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet for a total of 27 cubic feet.

v1 = 396 cubic feet/27 cubic feet per yard

v1 = 14 2/3 cubic yards

So 15 cubic yards should do it.

Good luck.

One is a measurement of length, the other is a measure of weight.

however, you might be referring to 'Cubic Yards'?

depends upon the rock type and how fine it is, but one reference notes that one cubic foot of gravel typically weighs about 100 pounds.

So 1 ton has 2000/100 or 20 cubic feet of gravel. A cubic yard is 3x3x3 = 27 cubic feet to the cubic yard

Answer is 20/27 or 0.74 cu yard. I'd round that to 3/4 cubic yard.

cubic measurement is length X width X height

rounded of f to nearest foot that makes it 2 ft X 4 ft X 2 ft and that = 16 cubic foot or slightly under 16 cubic foot

There are 27 cubic feet in one yard. IF your estimate of pile size is correct, you have 720 cubic feet witch is 26 yards.

Without knowing how many cubes we can't tell how high the pile will be. We do know that two 1cm cubes can fit on the base, however, two 1cm cubes can be placed on the cubes that are on the base and the tower of cubes can be stacked to an indeterminable height.
