Cubic feet are a measure of volume, yards are a measure of distance. It is not possible to compare the two. However, if you want to compare cubic feet to cubic yards , often referred to as a yard, there are 3 feet X 3 feet X 3 feet, or 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard.

How much does 3 cubic yards of topsoil with a density of 125 pounds per cubic foot equal to in weight given in tons?

1 cubic yard is 27 cubic feet, so 3 cubic yards is 81 cubic feet. At 125 lb per cubic foot, that much topsoil would weigh 10,125 lb. At 2000 lb per ton, that converts to 5.0625 tons (if we assume complete precision of all the numbers - if not, then we would be limited to 1 digit of precision because the 3 in 3 cubic yards is only precise to 1 digit. In that case we would have to round the answer off to be 5 tons)
