Thereof, how many square feet are in a cubic yard?

Step 3: Translate **Cubic Feet** Into **Cubic Yards** x 3 **ft**. x 3 **ft**—or 27 **cubic feet**. In other words, one **cubic yard** = 27 **cubic feet**. Since there are 27 **cubic feet** in a **cubic yard**, an overall volume measurement that is made in **cubic feet** can be translated into **cubic yards** simply by dividing the **cubic ft**.

**How to calculate concrete:**

- Determine how thick you want the concrete.
- Measure the length and width that you'd like to cover.
- Multiply the length by the width to determine square footage.
- Convert the thickness from inches to feet.
- Multiply the thickness in feet by the square footage to determine cubic feet.

Likewise, how many cubic feet are in a cubic yard of soil?

27 cubic feet

**1 cubic yard** = (**1 yard**)^{3} = (3 **feet**)^{3} = 3^{3} **feet**^{3} = **27 cubic feet**. Simply put, when dealing with square or **cubic** units, you square or cube the appropriate conversion factor.
