I have a triangle that is 33' X 33' X 33' X 6" deep.
How may cubic yards is this?
Area of an equilateral triangle is
where l = length of a side.
convert figures to yards
area is then
11^2 x sqrt3/4 = 52.4 sq yards
volume = 52.4/6 = 8.73 cu yards
Please check my maths and remember to include the untis with your answer.
Another need way to find the area of any triangle is Heron's formula, you can memorize it easy enough, so you can find the area of any triangle knowing the sides.
