This is a trick question, a riddle. There is NO dirt in the hole because you made the hole by taking all the dirt out. For the record, the amount of dirt that was taken out of the ground to make the hole is 6 x 6 x 4 = 144 ft3.

It's a hole, the dirt has been taken out of it. So, none.

This is probably a trick question: there is no dirt in a hole. However, the hole was originally filled in with 24 cubic feet of dirt.

None. The size of the hole is a measure of space in which there is no dirt!

To fill a hole 2 feet long, 4 feet wide, and 6 feet deep would take 48 (2 x 4 x 6) cubic feet of dirt.

There is NO dirt, it is a hole! If you want to fill it with dirt, that is 4x6x12=288 cubic feet, weighing about 28,800 pounds

Assuming the dirt is level with the top of the hole: Volume = 2 x 4 x 3 = 24 cubic feet, or about 7/8 of a cubic yard.

None. If there was, it would no longer be a hole!

504 cubic feet of dirt. For the answer just times width by length by depth 4 x 6 = 24 24 x 21 = 504

in order to work this out, you need to find the volume. to do this you can do some simple multplication; 3x3x4 = 36m cubed :)

As it is a hole, there is no dirt in it.However, assuming you have a cylindrical hole 3 ft wide, the volume of dirt removed to make the hole is:volume = รโฌ x radius2 x depth= รโฌ x (3/2)2 x 5 cu ft= 45รโฌ/4 cu ftรขโฐห35.34 cu ftIf your hole is a cuboid, that is it is 3 ft x 3ft by 5 ft deep, then the volume of dirt removed is:volume = length x width x depth= 3 x 3 x 5 cu ft= 45 cu ft.
