**Dr Russ**, Monday, September 12, 2011 at 11:07amArea of an equilateral triangle is

l^2 Sqrt3/4

where l = length of a side.

convert figures to yards

11x11x11x1/6

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.
