So the area is 8'5" long, 11" wide, and 6" thick?

The bags are listed in terms of cubic feet. For quickrete, go here: http://www.quikrete.com/PDFs/DATA_SH...Mix%201101.pdf If you don't want to do that, here is what they list as appx ft^3: YIELD • An 80 lb (36.3 kg) bag yields approximately 0.60 cu ft (17 L) • A 60 lb (27.2 kg) bag yields approximately 0.45 cu ft (12.7 L) • A 40 lb (18.1 kg) bag yields approximately 0.30 cu ft (8.5 L) Just multiply all of those numbers together: 8.42*0.92*0.5 = 3.87 ft^3. If you buy 60lb pound bags, you will need 3.87/0.45 = 8.6 bags. Round up to 9.
