    Step-by-step explanation:

    Since the pile of sand is conical, we would apply the formula for determining the volume of a cone which is expressed as

    Volume = 1/3 * πr²h

    Where

    r represents the radius of the cone.

    h represents the vertical height of the cone.

    π is a constant whose value is 3.14

    From the information given,

    Diameter = 18 feet

    Radius = Diameter/2 = 18/2

    Radius = 9 feet

    Height = 10 feet

    Therefore,

    Volume = 1/3 * 3.14 * 9² * 10

    Volume = 1/3 * 3.14 * 81 * 10

    Volume = 847.8 ft³
