It depends on sevaral factors. 1. How thick the dirt is 2. How compact the dirt is. Just a rule of thumb. (per cubic yard) 3 inches deep will cover an area 5.5' x 20' 6 inches deep will cover an area 5.5' x 10' 1' deep with cover an area of about 5.5' x 5'

It is a hole! There is no dirt in it. If the question asked how much was removerd from ta hole, then I would say 432 cubic feet.

A hole 30 ft long by 6 feet wide by 6 inches deep is 90 cubic feet. 90 cubic feet divided by 27 cubic feet per cubic yard is three and one-third (3.3333) yards.

It will take 800 cubic yards 1/3 compaction.

4 inches = 1/3 foot1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feetVolume to fill = (30 x 30 x 1/3) = 300 cubic feet = (300 / 27) = 11 and 1/9th cubic yards
