:) If I have a truck and it is 20ft long 98inches wide and 10 ft long, how do I fiqure out how many cubic feet that is. Will 175 cubic ft of stuff fit into it?

First convert them all to the same units, such as feet, then just multiply them together.

Mr. Fogt: Please HELP! I've read most of your responses for cubic yard conversions, but I still need help with my situation.

My new home is on .37 acre...we need to get top soil to put down, level out, & seed. However, it is sold by the cubic yard. Can you please help me? How much will I need to cover the land. Thank you. ???

nevermind...I think I figured it out.....

.37 acre = 16117.2 sq ft

cubic ft = 16117.2 * .17 (2" high) cubic ft = 2739.92

cubic yd = 16117.2/27 cubic yd = [b]101.47[/b]

does this look right?!?!?

That is correct.

Though when I calculated it, I did not round off, used 0.1666666667 instead of 0.17 for the height, and I came up with 99.5 cubic yards.
