Mulch is sold by the cubic yard.

The contaminated soil covers an area of 1.62 acres. Ed must remove the top 18 inches of soil in this area. 1 acre = 43,560 square feet 1 square yard = 9 square feet What is the area of contaminated soil in square yards? 1600.0 3920.4 7840.8 108906: With the information from number 5, what is the total volume of the contaminated soil in cubic yards? 1600.0 3920.4 7840.8 108907: With the information from number 5 and 6, if each truck can haul 10 cubic yards of soil, how many full truckloads of contaminated soil will Ed be removing? 160 392 393 784

well first of all you should be doing your own homework hahaha. that said ill help you with the first one. you need to ge the volumes of each bed. the first bed the volume is height x width x depth, and you want to keep your units in feet. so the first bed is 0.5 x 2 x 25 = 25sqft, bed two is the same and bed 3 is 0.5 x 4 x 25 = 50. the last one is the tricky one but the formula for the colume of a circle is pi x radius^2 x height so pi x 7.5^2 x 0.5 = 88.3573. so add all those up and thats the volume in cubic feet. you need cubic yards so you divide by 27. there are 27 cubic feet in a cubic yard. so you get a final answer of 6.97 which rounded up is 7 which is one of your choices. now im not doing the rest of your homework but if you need formulas check online also if you need conversions the internet is a useful tool there as well. hope this helps you out some.
