There are three (3) feet in a yard, so one foot is one-third of a yard.

Assuming that 20x12 means 20 feet by 12 feet, then you take the three values in feet - 20, 12, and .333 (4 inches is 1/3 foot).

Multiply these three numbers to get the cubic feet:

12 x 20 = 240

240 x .333 = 79.92

Now that you have 79.92 cubic feet, to get cubic yards you divide by 9 since there are 9 cubic feet per cubic yard.

79.92 cu. ft. divided by 9 = 8.88 cubic yards (round up to 9).

Multiply these three numbers to get the cubic feet:

12 x 20 = 240

240 x .333 = 79.92

Now that you have 79.92 cubic feet, to get cubic yards you divide by 9 since there are 9 cubic feet per cubic yard.

79.92 cu. ft. divided by 9 = 8.88 cubic yards (round up to 9).

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.

How it Works
### Stone and Mulch Calculators

As an example, let's use 500 square feet to be mulched at a

3" depth.

### For Your Information

3" depth.

- First, the depth must be converted to feet. To convert inches to feet, simply divide inches by 12, the number of inches in a foot.

So for our example: 3 inches divided by 12 equals a 0.25 foot depth. - Now that we have the depth in feet, we can multiply the depth by the area.

So for our example: 0.25 foot depth times 500 square feet equals 125 cubic feet. - If you are calculating 0.5, 2, or 3, cubic foot bags, simply divide 125 cubic feet by the size of the bag.

So for our example: if we are using 2 cubic foot bags, we can divide 125 cubic feet by 2 which equals 62.5 bags. - If you are calculating cubic yards, we need to convert 125 cubic feet to cubic yards by dividing by 27. One cubic yard is equal to 27 cubic feet, see the diagram below.

So for our example: 125 cubic feet divided by 27 equals 4.63 cubic yards.

- 1 inch equals 0.08333 feet
- 1.5 inches equals 0.125 feet
- 2 inc

First step - convert everything to feet - 5" is 5/12 of a foot

40 x 4 x 5/12 = 66.6 cubic feet.

Since a cubic yard is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet, there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.

66.6 cubic feet / 27 cubic feet/cubic yard = 2.5 cubic yards.

Good luck.

40 x 4 x 5/12 = 66.6 cubic feet.

Since a cubic yard is 3 feet by 3 feet by 3 feet, there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.

66.6 cubic feet / 27 cubic feet/cubic yard = 2.5 cubic yards.

Good luck.

Hi Paula:

A mathematical logic question.

You need to get all of the measurements in the same units.

- A cubic yard is 1 yard x 1 yard x 1 yard

- equals 3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft

- equals 27 cubic feet,

so once you have the volume of the pipe in cubic feet, you divide by 27 to get the volume in cubic yards.

- Volume of a cylinder (the pipe) is the cross sectional area X length.

- Area equals Pi x r squared.

- equals 22/7 x 1 x 1

equals 3.14#####

times length (20)

equals 62.857### cubic feet volume

divide by 27 cubic feet

equals 2.328### cubic yards.

- The answer is always the easy part.

- what is important is knowing exactly what the question is, and

- determing what calculations are needed to get the answer.

Wasn't that better than if I'd just said 2 1/3 cubic yards?

Cheers

Since 4 inches is 1/3 foot (.333), you first compute cubic feet. The equation is:

2800 divided by .333 = 933.33 cubic feet

Next divide by 9 to get (cubic) yards:

933.33 divided by 9 = 103.703 yards

2800 divided by .333 = 933.33 cubic feet

Next divide by 9 to get (cubic) yards:

933.33 divided by 9 = 103.703 yards

- Calculate
- Calculate your area (see below)
- Calculate your volume; Multiply area times the depth, this will be volume in cubic feet
- Calculate your cubic yards; Divide cubic feet by 27 to convert to cubic yards and this is your answer.
- Where (ft2) = square foot, (ft3) = cubic foot, (yd3) = cubic yard

- or i'll do it 66 and 2/3 cu Yds

1 cubic foot = 0.037037037 cubic yards.

Here 6 x 9 x 5 = 270 cubic foot = [270 x 0.037037037] = 9.999999999 cubic yards.

Cubic yard is a unit of volume. Square foot is a unit of area. There is no direct conversion between them.

Say you have a 22000 square foot swimming pool. How many cubic yards of water does it take to fill the pool? You can't answer that without knowing how deep the pool is.

1 Foot = 0.3333 Yards

1 Yard = 3 Feet
