## How to Use the Calculator

To use the crushed stone calculator, enter the length, width, and depth of the area you want to cover with crushed stone. Make sure all dimensions are positive numbers. The length and width should be entered in feet, and the depth should be entered in inches. Click the Calculate button to get the amount of crushed stone needed in cubic yards.

## How it Calculates the Results

This calculator uses the following steps to calculate the amount of crushed stone needed:

- Converts the depth from inches to feet by dividing by 12.
- Multiplies the length, width, and depth in feet to get the volume in cubic feet.
- Converts the volume from cubic feet to cubic yards by dividing by 27.

## Limitations

Please note that this calculator provides an estimate only. Actual amounts may vary based on the specific characteristics of the crushed stone, such as size, moisture content, and compaction. Always round up and consider ordering a little extra to account for compaction and waste.
