Noe but it can be filled in with 12 cubic feet of dirt

None because it's a hole but 6 cubic yards of dirt will fill it up.

The formula for the volume is length * height * depth (or width) = 33 =3*3*3 = 27 cubic feet, but the answer to the question is 0; there's no dirt in a hole... We are not digging a hole here; we are building a mini-mastaba that is 1 foot deep above the original ground level. 48 cubic feet of dirt is required which equals 48/27 = 1.78 cubic yards of dirt.

20ft x 10ft x 7ft = 1400 cubic feet 1 yard of dirt = 27 cubic feet Hence yards required = 1400/27 = 51.85

27 cubic feet = 1 cubic yard14-ft x 7-ft x 3-ft = 294 cubic feet = 108/9 cubic yards

None. It's a hole. 162 cubic feet of air. There is no dirt in a hole.

No dirt because its a hole

The volume of the hole is 2 yards * 3 yards * 1 yard = 6 cubic yards. To convert this to cubic feet, we multiply by 27 (since 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet). Therefore, the volume of the hole in cubic feet is 6 cubic yards * 27 cubic feet = 162 cubic feet of dirt.

It doesn't hold any dirt. It's a hole.

14 cubic feet = 0.518 cubic yards

1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet12 x 12 x 2 = 288 cubic feet = 102/3 cubic yards

Two yards is six feet, three yards is nine feet, one yard is three feet. So your "hole" is 6 by 9 by 3 cubic feet. That is 162 cubic feet of "hole". That is the simple answer. The junior high school answer. But if you are asking this for real then that is a whole different matter. If you actually dug it out in dry dirt, you'd get about three times the effective volume of dirt. Your hole would "contain" 162 cubic feet of air ! But your pile of dirt would need about 500 cubic feet of truck space to carry it away, because it would be bulked up by the act of undigging it ! In the ground it is packed together, once you put a spade to it then it gets loose and the volume increases about 3 times.
