Question Converting for cubic yards

In my rapidly accelerating age, I have forgotten how to convert square yards to cubic yards. I have 306 sq. ft., or 34 sq. yards. Am looking for a 2 inch depth of mulch (cedar wood chips).
Is 1.85 cu. yds. correct? What is the formula?

You and me both.

Try out this converter.

If you need something different search "converter" in google.

2 inches is 1/6 foot
306 square feet times 1/6 foot = 51 cubic feet
27 cubic feet per cubic yard
51 / 27 = 1.9 cubic yards

length times width times depth = volume
