Question from deb:

1 room 49x24 1 room 18x18 need 6 inch deep can u convert to cubic feet for me thank you


I assume that except for the depth the dimensions are in feet. S the first room is 49 feet by 24 feet and you want depth of 6 inches which is 1/2 of a foot. Thus the volume is

49 × 24 × 1/2 = 588 cubic feet.

I hope this helps,
