cylinder 18 feet diameter x 1.5 feet deep volume = 381 cubic feet

1.963 cubic feet

96 cubic feet

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.

This problem gets easy quickly if you put everything in the same units. When you see 4 inches, think of one third of a foot. Fifteen feet times a third of a foot gives five square feet. Multiply 5 by 20, 100 cubic feet. If you are going to get the dirt by digging it from compacted soil, get 100 cubic feet. If you are getting loose dirt, better get 120 cubic feet - it will settle !
