Question about Fish
What is an easy way to calculate square yards in a pile of gravel that is 4' high, 15' length and 12' wide? The person I bought it from said it was around 15 to 17 yards. Would that be correct?
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.

Brad Bs. answer is correct if you said it was in a cube. But you said pile. So we need to make some assumptions. Like the angle of the pile. Lets make it easy & guess about 45 degree slump.
4' high = 1.33 yd X 15' long = 5 yd. X 12' wide = 4 yd.
So 1.3 yd. x 5 yd. x 4 yd. = 26.6 cubic yards. But with a 45 degree slump at lest 1/2 of this cube is air so you most likely have about 13 cubic yards of gravel. If your slump is more like 30 degrees you will have even less gravel. And I didn't subtract for the slump on both ends so I doubt you have more than 10 cubic yards in your pile. sorry.
