cubic yards

I have an area that is 12,000 and the pad needs to be 6 inches thick. How many cubic yards of concrete do I need?

You don't state whether the area (12 000) is in square feet, square inches, meters, etc.. There is a huge difference in quantities.

If square feet: 12 000 ft2 * 0.5 ft = 6 000 ft3 / 27 ft3 = 222.23 yd3

If square inches: 12 000 in2 / 144 in2 = 83.34 ft2 * 0.5 ft = 41.67 ft3 / 27 ft3 = 1.55 yd3
