If you convert the inches to feet and multiply out, thats 1.5 ft³.

I've read the bags make up 0.6 ft³/bag, but please check that figure by looking on the bags you are buying. So, 2.5 bags.

Yes, check the quantity on the bag. 0.6 ft^3 is considered a standard size bag of Quikcrete but they do make 0.5 ft^3 and 0.4 ft^3 bags.
