Your home is 48' long x 49' wide and 14' from the peak of the roof to the edge of the roof. If you have a gable or hip roof then you will need 82 bundles of shingles. If you install felt under the shingles you will need 7 rolls of 15 lbs. felt or 14 rolls of 30 lbs. felt.

### How many cubic yards does it take to cover 1 inch deep, 3700 square feet?

Since we are trying to calculate the number of cubic yards, let's calculate everything in terms of yards.

Converting inches to yards, we have to divide by 36, since there are 36 inches in a yard.

1 ' = 1/36 yard

Converting square feet to square yards, we divide by 9, since there are 9 square feet in a square yard.

3700 square feet = 411 square yards

Calculating cubic yards, we multiply 411 square yards by 1/36 of a yard.

I get 11.42 cubic yards. So you are safe getting 12 cubic yards.

Good luck,

### Will 51 cubic foot of foam insulation, cover 400 square feet of a wall?

That depends upon how thick the foam insulation is. That is the only way to compute from cubic feet to square feet.

To simplify, assume the foam is 1 foot wide by 1 foot thick by 51 feet long. That is 51 cubic feet of foam. If you slice the block lengthwise at 1 inch intervals, you get 12 slices, each 1 foot wide by 51 feet long by 1 inch thick. This is 51 square feet of coverage at 1 inch. You would be able to cover 51x12, or 612 square feet.

Increase the thickness of the slice to 1-1/2 inches, you only get 8 slices, or coverage for 408 square feet.

Any thicker than that, and you won't get enough coverage for 400 square feet.

### Formula to calculate square feet from feet

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.

### What is the radius of a 3/4 acre circle (in feet)

Oh wow, lots of math going on here...

There are 4840 square yards in an acre and 9 square feet in a square yard (4840 x 9 = 43,560).

An acre is an old timers measurement used in agriculture...
it was 4 poles wide and 40 poles long. A pole is equivalent to sixteen and a half feet. So back then, an acre was a piece of farming land 660 feet long (220 yards or one eighth of a mile) and 66 feet wide (22 yards or one eightieth of a mile).

Acre is a measure of area, which would be square feet.

Feet are a measure of distance.

The best you could do is something like this:
An acre is 43, 560 square feet.
Draw/imagine a square or a rectangle that would cover that much area.

If it is a square, it would be (approximately) 208.7 feet on each side.

Its perimeter (the distance around it if you walk an imaginary fence around you acre-sized plot) would be 834.8 feet.

Trying to to figure out an acre of 'Circle' - hmmmmm???

sorry, just can't wrap my head around this to come up with the correct equation.
maybe we can get lucky with some other brainiac taking what I did provide and come up with a solution for you?

Square - It would be 208.7 feet across if you walk across it, and the same if you walk the other way across it.

### Surface area =300 square feet 25 year old ash

Ash fault? I think you mean "asphalt" but that's OK. You haven't given enough information to solve the problem, but here's what you need to do.

You know the area of the roof is 300 square feet (sq ft). You should know the area of each asphalt shingle, although that's the information you didn't give. When you know that figure, the calculation is very simple:

number of shingles needed = area of roof / area of one shingle

I don't know if this is a class problem, or if you really have a roofing job. Don't forget that on a real roof, the shingles overlap. If you do the calculation, the number you get is right only if you lay the shingles edge-to-edge. A real-world roof would need probably twice that number. Shingles come packed in bundles, and they usually tell you the area they cover. (By the way, 100 square feet is termed a "square".)
