3 yd = 1 ft

→ volume = 120 ft × 40 ft × 1 ft = (120 ÷ 3) yd × (40 ÷ 3) yd × (1 ÷ 3) yd = 4800 ÷ 27 yd³ = 177 7/9 cu yd ≈ 177.78 cubic yards.

### How many cubic yards are in a 12 x 2 x 5 foot form?

Assuming that the form is a parallelepiped, its volume in cubic
feet is the product of its three dimensions in feet: 12 X 2
X 5 = 120 cubic feet. There are 27 cubic feet per cubic yard;
therefore, the volume in cubic yards is 120/27 = 4 cubic yards, to
the justified number of significant digits. If the dimensions given
are considered exact, the answer is 4 and four-ninths cubic
yards.

### Does 3 yards equal 1 cubic yard?

No. A yard is a measure of distance. A cubic yard is a measure
of volume. They do not equate.

No, but some people (including some people who sell soil
products) refer to cubic yards as yards (for example: "3 yards of
compost will cost you 120$" or "The compost is 40$ per yard.").

### How many yards of dirt in a 120 feet round circle?

The question doesn't say it, so we'll assume that a "120 feet
circle" means that
the diameter is 120-ft, i.e. the distance all the way
across, through the center.
Area of the circle = pi R2 = 3,600 pi square feet.
If the dirt is one inch deep, then the volume is (3,600 pi) / 12
cubic feet = 34.907 cubic yards. (rounded)
The answer is: 34.907 cubic yards (rounded) for every inch the
dirt is deep.

###### Asked in Units of Measure, Volume

### How many cubic yards in 120 feet by 50 feet at four inches deep?

Very close to 74 cubic yards.
Here's the math . . .
All dimensions have to be in the same units, so convert 4 inches
to feet. 4in/12in per ft=0.333 feet.
Find the volume in cubic feet. 120' x 50' x 0.333' = 2,000 cubic
feet, more or less.
There are 27 cubic feet within each cubic yard, so divide
2000CF/27CF per CY = 74.07 CY (cubic yards).
