We need to convert feet to cubic yards. The concrete is 45ft by 10ft by 4ft. How many cubic yards is this?

Hi Sandy,

You want the volume in cubic yards, that is yards yards yards so you need to convert the measurements to yards. There are three feet in a yard so

45 ft is  45/3  yards
10 ft is 10/3  yards and
4 ft is 4/3  yards

and thus the volume of concrete is

45/3  10/3  4/3  = 66.7 cubic yards
