There are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.

3 inches = 0.25 feet

4.25 x 4.25 x 7 = 126.4375 cubic feet.

126.4375 / 27 = 4.68287037037037 cubic yards, rounded to one decimal place, 4.7 -- edit-- Assuming that you want to fill the hole with tightly packed sand, and that the sand is bought loosely packed, you'll need to over-estimate the amount, depending on the differences involved.

### How many cubic yards of concrete do you need to fill a form 2 feet wide 18 inches deep and 24 feet long?

2 feet = 2/3 yard
18 inches = 1/2 yard
24 feet = 8 yards
Volume = (2/3) x (1/2) x (8) = 8/3 = 22/3 cubic
yards.
If you're having it delivered pre-mixed,
I think they charge for 3 yards.
========================================
2 feet = 0.666666667 yards
18 inches = 0.5 yards
24 feet = 8 yards
So:
0.666666667x0.5x8 = 2.666666668 cubic yards
but how you are going to buy exactly 2.67 cubic yards - you
have to figure it out on your own.

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic

### How many yards of sand to fill a sand box 20 ft wide by 20 ft wide by 3 inches deep?

In order to answer this question you must first convert the
measurements into inches(20 ft= 240 in), so the new problem is
240*240*3, which equals 172800. Then you must convert the inches
into yards by dividing 172800 by 36, which equals 4800.
So it takes 4800 yards of sand to fill a sandbox 20 feet by 20
feet by 3 inches.

### How many yards of crushed stone does it take to fill 114 inch by 114 inch hole that is 8 inch deep?

The hole is 114 inches (9.5 ft.) by 114 inches (9.5 ft.) by 8
inches (.666 ft.) deep. Therefore the hole is (9.5 x 9.5 x .6666)
cubic feet or approx. 60 cubic feet One cubic yard will cover 3ft x
3ft x 3ft = 27 cubic feet
Divide the volume of the hole (60 cubic ft.) by the number of
cubic feet in a yard (27) to determine the number of yards needed
to fill the hole. 60 / 27 = 2.22 yards Yea about 2 tons.
