Hi Neisha, A box that is one yard long, one wide and one yard high holds one cubic yard. Since one yard is three feet you can pack your one cubic foot box with 3 3 3 = 27 boxes that are one foot long by one foot wide by one foot high. Thus there are 27 cubic feet in one cubic yard. Hence, in eight cubic yards there are 27 8 = 216 cubic feet. Penny |
