In order to calculate cubic feet you must multiply the LxWxH (where L=length, W=width and H=height or depth) making sure all three numbers are in feet. For example: a box 3' long by 2' wide by 1.5' high would contain 9 cubic feet of space. (3x2x1.5). If one or more of the measurements is in inches then you must convert it to feet or the others to inches. If all three measurements are in inches multiply them and then divide your answer by 1728 to give cubic feet because their are 1728 cubic inches in a cubic foot. (12x12x12). For example the same problem above in inches would be: 36x24x18=15,552cubic inches. Divide 15,552 by 1728 = 9 cubic feet

### 250ftx15ft, how many cubic ft.?

Not enough information to answer. For AREA, you multiply length times width and get square feet. For VOLUME you multiply length times width times height and get cubic feet. You need a third value to calculate cubic feet.

### Can you tell me how many cubic feet I have in a space of 10x6 ft and 16" wide

You are missing one unit (10 ft or 10 inches). Convert all inch measurements into feet ( 1in =1/12 ft) then perform the calculation. The result will be in cubic feet.

### How do you calculate cubic feet?

You calculate a volume. If all the lengths, radii, heights are in feet the resulting volume is in cubic feet.
Example: Right rectangular prism with L=5 ft, W= 3 ft, height =1.5 ft
Volume =(5 ft)*(3 ft)*(1.5 ft)= (5*3*1.5) (ft*ft*ft)=22.5 ft^3

### Hi i need to know how to convert 80 sq ft to cubic meters

You don't. Square feet is a measure of area while cubic meters is a measure of volume.

Consider a room 8 ft by 10 ft. The floor area is 80 square ft. What's the volume of the room in cubic feet (let's not worry about converting to meters yet). Well, that depends on the height of the ceiling, doesn't it? If the ceiling is 8 ft high then the volume is 640 cubic feet. If the ceiling is 12 ft high then the volume is 960 cubic feet. Without that third dimension, you can't calculate the volume.
