Question about Calculators

Hmmm... is this a real gardening question, or am I about to do your math homework? Your dimensions amount to 5.5 cubic feet or 0.2 cubic yards.

If you're planning to buy bagged topsoil, it's hard to say the number of bags because they are sold by weight, which depends on moisture content. You could start with about six 50 pound bags and see how it looks.

you have to many numbers there

If you are saying 12'x15'x what deep 3 inches or 3' ?

12'x15'=180 sq ft x3' = 540 cubic feet or 20 cubic yards

x3inches= 40 cubic feet

First figure the area of the circle. The formula is

pi r squared, or

3.14 x (9x9).

Pi = approx 3.14.

Radius of 18' circle is 9'.

Area of circle is 254.34 square feet. To get cubic feet, multiply the area in feet by the depth in feet. In this case, since the depth is only one foot, the cubic feet will be 254.34 cubic feet (254.34 x 1)

How big is your flower bed in square feet? How deep do you want the mulch to be? We multiply the two (in feet) to get the number of cubic feet.

For example, if your flowed bed is 10' by 15' and you want you much to be 6" deep, we would calculate the area of your flower bed as 10 x 15 or 150 square feet. We have to convert the mulch depth from 6' to 1/2' or 0.5'. We multiply the 150 square feet by 1/2' and get 75 cubic feet.

Good luck.

The Dimensions really depend on the shape of the bags. for visualization purposes the bed of a Ford F150 is about 55 cubic feet you're getting 240 cubic feet so that's close to 4.5 truck beds.

4 feet by 4 feet by 2/3 foot is 10 2/3 cubic feet.

What are the numbers?

If they're all feet, then the volume is 18 feet times 23 feet times 16 feet or 6624 cubic feet. If they're all inches then the volume is 3.83 cubic feet. If they're in some other unit(s) then the answer will be something else.

Multiply 12 feet by 4 feet by 12 feet to get 576 cubic feet.

How thick do you want the mulch? The planter is 24 feet by 18 feet or 432 square feet. If you want mulch one foot deep then you need 432 cubic feet. For two feet, 864 cubic feet. For mulch one inch deep, 36 cubic feet.

How big is the planter, what are its demensions. Figure out how many yards in the planter, Right? Either full yards or partial. Or you can buy the top soil in bags, start filling the planter, and when you over fill and spill on the ground you have the right amount, Also you must ask are there plants in the planter, because they will take up some room with their roots.. Good luck...By the wayis this a left handed planter or a right handed planter, ????
