Re: formula for cubic yards asphalt to tons

length x width - divide by 9 gets you square yards. multiply the square yards x .17 for tons @ 3" thick. works every time!

I'm sure you mean 23' x 28'. In inches, it would be the size of a patio stone. You need about 6 cubic yards or 12 tons.

1 yd = 3 ft = 36 in, so
(23/3) x (28/3) x (3/36) = 6 ydł, it is about 2 ton/ydł, so 12 ton.
