I need help getting cubic yards
We have a scrap yard and one of our hoopers is 22 X 7 X 5.8 Can you tell me how many cubic yards it is?
I came up with little over 31 but not exactly sure how to get the correct measurements into the calculator with the 5.8 Thanks

Is the 5.8 really decimal or is it 5 feet 8 inches? Assuming 22' x 7' x 5'8" 8" is 2/3 of a foot, so 5.6667' In cubic feet, you have 22' x 7' x 5.6667' = 872.67 ft³ 872.67 ft³ x 1 yd³/27ft³ = 32.3 yd³

Re: I need help getting cubic yards
yes, it is 5'8" .... one more question, I know most ppl just want the answer but if I understand the equation I won't have to ask again and can figure on my own... anyways, where does the 27 that you divide it come from? what is that figure?

Kudos for wanting to understand the formula so you can calculate it yourself. You're never to old to learn. Before I get myself in trouble, I didn't say you were old. :) Last edited by Dirtman; 01082009 at 07:42 PM.
