How many tons of base would be needed for an area of 6232 sq ft by 4 inch thick?

You can calculate as follows:

* Convert the 4 inches to feet.

* Multiply the area by the thickness. The result, so far, will be in cubic feet.

* Multiply this by the density of the base. If you have the density in pounds per cubic foot, the answer will be in pounds.

* Convert that to pounds.

There is not enough information available to answer this question. You need to know how many tons are in one 1 cubic inch of base. We can call that x. Once you have that, multiple x by the cubic inches you are trying to fill, in this case:

(6232 sq. ft. * 12 in. / ft. ) * 4 in. = 299136 cu. in.

299136 cu. in. * x tons / cu. in. = tons of base you need
