    to change square feet to cubic yards.
    what is the conversion formula to use?
    what am I missing here?

    volume= length x witdth x height

    area= length x width

    volume= area x height

    [say converting 3200 square feet 3 to 4 inches deep into cubic yards] Thanks ahead of time.

    volume in cubic yards= length x width x depth

    Then divide that number by 324

    See the sticky at the top of the maintenance forum (this forum). It's all explained there.

    It's really a simple calculation, especially after you've done it a few times.:)
