Volume of trapezoid prism.

V = h(a+b) * L

h = total length
a = area of face a (one of the ends (not top or bottom) = (width of large face * depth)
b = area of other face b = (width of small face * depth)
L = depth

Put that puppy into Excel and vary your different measurements in 3 columns with the formula reading from the columns. You'll get a range of volumes. Oh yeah, make sure all measurements are in the same units.

I think that's got it.

If the length is 80 feet and the width begins at 40' and narrows to 15' at the end of the 80' length, the total volume is 550 cubic feet.
