Volume= 2.92cubic yard

Step-by-step explanation:

Converting to ft

23ft9inches= 23+(9/12)=23.75ft

10ft 1 in= 10 +(1/12)= 10.083ft

4 inches= (4/12)=0.333ft

Volume= L×W×H

Volume= 23.75 × 10.083×0.33= 79.02ft^3

Converting to cubic yard

1 cubic foot= 0.037 cubic yard

79.02 cubic feet= 0.037× 79.02= 2.92cubic yard
