    You live in Canada and are 19 years old...why are you figuring in Imperial and not Metric? I had to learn it when I was out of school, Im sure it was all you were ever taught????
    What your asking is simple Math... if you didnt get your answer I'll post it in the formula thread that was started a while ago.

    sqft multiplied by depth is cuft.
    divide cubic feet by 27
