Question from Jeremy:

If I have an area 50' x 1200', what would be the elevation with 80,000 yards of dirt on it.

Break the problems down Area = length x width = ______________yd^{2}

So 80,000 yd^{3} is how many cubic yards per square yard? That's also the depth (in yards of course)

As always, ask yourself if this seems reasonable (I think so in this case!)

Good hunting! RD
