brettman6533 teaches you how to convert from cubic yards to cubic feet and inches. The volume of a cube is side cubed. If the side of a cube is 1 foot, then the volume would be 1 foot squared. Knowing that a foot equals 12 inches, you transform that into 1 times 12 in times 12 in times 12, which equals 1728 inches squared. If you want to convert a cubic yard, you have to remember 1 yard equals 3 feet. So now 1 yard squared is 1 times 3 feet times 3 feet times 3 feet, which is 27 feet squared. Now you know how to convert from cubic yards to cubic feet and inches.
