Calculating Area w/ odd numbers?
Looking to calculate the area of a job site with the following dimensions...
102 x 49 x 85 x 62 Trying to figure out how many yards of materials I would need.

I must be using invisible ink when I type. As stated before the area is 6,834 sq ft

L x w x depth in inches/ 324 ...cubic yards

#8




102 x 49 x 85 x 62
Didn't realize we had 4 dimensions. That calculates to be 26,339,460 ft to the 4th power. Then you could potentially take the derivative, which would leave you with 105,357,840 ft^3, which is a usable volume. In order to place you order at the mulch yard, you would need yd^3, so that would calculate to be 3,902,142 cubic yards. You're better off getting deliveries straight from the supplier. Much more inexpensive to buy bulk direct at that point. Just my 2 scentz

There's no way in hell this backyard takes 324 yards...
I gave in and measured the longest portion, and the widest portion coming up with the following 72 x 92 = 7,056 7,056 x 2"(0.0061) = 43.06 or 43 cubic yards 43 Cubic Yards spread evenly at 2" should cover 7,056 square feet.
