What you have is a large rectangular box. The length and width are 55 feet and 75 feet and the height 13 inches. I don't know which dimension is the length and which is the width but it doesn't matter. You slice the box in half along along a diagonal plane and above the plane is the gravel. Here is my diagram (not to scale). Thus the volume you need is half the volume of the box. Use our volume calculator to find the volume of the box in cubic yards and then divide this volume by 2. I hope this helps,
