Forum rules
Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

I know this has probably already been asked and I tried to do it myself but was unable to figure it out.

I have 2 areas of concrete I want to pour.

One section is 1750 sq feet at 4 inches depth


Section two is 1900 sq feet at 6 inches depth.


How many yards concrete will I need for each section?

Thank You.
Buster

Express the thickness in feet
Multiply to get cubic feet
Convert to cubic yards

1750 sq ft x 4 in x 1 ft/12 in x 1 cu yd/27 cu ft = 21.6 cu yd
1900 sq ft x 6 in x 1 ft/12 in x 1 cu yd/27 cu ft = 35.2 cu yd
