Piero pose la question : I want to fill my backyard slope with fill dirt. The slope is 50 feet wide and the distance from the top of the top of the slope to the bottom is about 15 feet deep and the slope angle is at a 45. I want to know how many yards of dirt do I need to fill a space that is 20 feet out, 15 feet deep at a 45 degree angle. Stephen La Rocque lui répond.

Kim pose la question : I need to find out how to calculate the square footage of an area in my backyard that is in the shape of a "slice of pie". There are two sides that are straight lines that come together at the top to form a point, and then at the bottom is a curved line that joins the two other lines together. I need to figure out how to calculate the square footage that is inside the area. Penny Nom lui répond.
