Yes, divide the cubic feet by 27 to get cubic yards. Your truck will hold 3.6667 cubic yards of loose material. 3' x 11' x 3' = 99 cubic feet / 27 = 3.6667 cubic yards.
To convert cubic yards into square feet, multiply cubic yards by 27 to convert to cubic feet. Divide one measurement out of it to get square feet.
Example: Your dump bed holds 3.6667 cubic yards. So, 3.667 x 27 = 99 cubic feet. If you divide 99 cubic feet by 3, you get the square footage of the bottom of your dump bed, which is 33 square feet.
