as suggested above, the math is easy, but it depends on the size of the bag. Bags are marked as to how much they hold(.2 cu yds, etc), again, do the math.

Thank you, Jogr... I didn't think anyone noticed once the original posts were cold.

Someday we're going to get people to actually try that SEARCH feature.

You're right...I should have been able to make some sense of these numbers

And use the search feature ?
Thats the advanced course, for after they learn to post a readable question

Why not just assist the new member with their question like itsreallyconc did, instead of jumping on her? Pretty unimpressive guys.

And the answer might also lie in the fact that when I typed her exact wording... "How many bags of concrete..." into the search blank above the forum, the "How to" article Jogr posted came right up on page 2.

I may be a bit biased since I wrote the article, but I think Jogr answered her question perfectly.

I may be way out of line here too, but before I ask questions on any forum, I do some searching first. Am I, perhaps, expecting too much of others?

Kind of like hoping someone might think to search for Fire Blocking before asking someone to go all through it again. No?
