4 inches = 1/3 foot 1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet (60-ft x 3-ft x 1/3-ft) / (3 feet per yard)3 = (2 and 2/9) cubic yards

I think 17 or maybe 38

There are three feet = 36 inches per yard. Thus the number of cubic yards of sand required for the specified box = (6/3)(6/3)(10/36) = 1 cubic yard, to the justified number of significant digits, or 1.111111. . . cubic yards if the integers stated in the problem are considered exact.
