The total cost is $210

Work Step by Step

We can find the volume: $V = W \times L \times H$ $V = 12~ft \times 15~ft \times 2~ft$ $V = 360~ft^3$ We can convert the volume to units of cubic yards: $V = (360~ft^3)\times (\frac{1~yd^3}{27~ft^3}) = \frac{40}{3}~yd^3$ We can calculate the cost: $cost = (\$15.75/yd^3)(\frac{40}{3}~yd^3) = \$210$
