Answer: 
A 60 lb. bag of QUIKRETE Concrete Mix yields approximately 0.45 cubic feet of concrete. If applied 4” thick, which is the typical depth for a slab, a 60 lb bag will roughly cover 1.35 cubic feet. Yields are approximate and will vary based upon waste, uneven sub-grade, etc.

I hate giving answers like this, but it depends.
One bag of quickrete will make about a half of a cubic foot of concrete, little less little more depending on how messy things get.
half a cubic foot will cover three square feet 2 inches thick or one and a half square feet 4 inches thick

For a gate that is wider, you might consider a 4x6 or sister two posts if you are concerned and stay with the two ft hole and 6 ft above grade.
My calculations are one 90# sack comes short to fill a two ft deep hole with standard post hole digger 6-7 inches width and a 4x4. Use 2 60# per ft.
The dirt/soil here is HARD. I would never dig a 12 inch wide hole. Why would you. Too much work for zero gain.
I use to use the 90# bags but the 60# are easier to lift and move.
After putting in probably 60 posts and many more to go, I suggest the 60# as 1 per foot.
I have not had a post go over in 32 years at the house. The post may rot, but the cement is still solid.

I used (1) 60lb bag on an 18" deep x 8" dia. hole with a 4x6 Pole and it was 4" short of filling to the top. Your hole will probably be 12" depth x 6" dia. which would take ~3/4 of a 60lb Bag.

Answer: 
When placing fence posts, the depth of the post hole should be one-half of the above-ground post height, for example: For a 4' above ground post, use a post with an overall height of 6 feet and place 2 feet (24”) in the ground. For holes that are 24” deep, with a 12” diameter, and a 4” x 4” square post placed within, a single hole would require approximately three 60# bags of mixed QUIKRETE Concrete Mix. Read More

Answer: 
If you're setting 4x4 posts, you're gonna want to dig your holes deeper than 1 foot. The Quikrete folks will tell you to dig a hole half as deep as the height of your post out of the ground. (e.g., for a 6 foot high post you would need a 9 foot long 4x4 with 3 feet of it being buried in the hole). While that will certainly be sturdy, I would go with 8 foot posts and bury them in 2 foot holes. Having said Read More

Answer: 
You have 2.72 cubic feet.
2.72 cubic feet times 135lb per cubic foot of concrete is 368lb of concrete needed.
If you buy 60lb bags of concrete, you will need a bit more than 6.
You could always stuff some more rocks in the wet concrete so you don't have to buy a full bag.

The area of a circle is Pi times r squared, so 3.14 times 5 squared or 3.14 times 25 = 78.5 square inches.
Multiply the area by the height (60 inches). 78.5 X 60 = 4710 cubic inches.
There are 1728 cubic inches in a cubic foot. Divide 4710 by 1728 and we have 2.73 cubic feet.

I use 0.45 cubic feet per bag to calculate necessary volume. I suspect that the 60 pound bag was intended to approximate a half cubic foot, but 0.45 cubic feet is more conservative and works out in practice. So: 2.73 cu. ft. divided by 0.45 = 6.06 bags. 6 bags should be OK if you are careful. Be sure to vibrate or tamp and reinforce properly.

60 lb. Concrete Mix is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product - Water Content is Critical This is a great product for small jobs around the home, but there are a couple of critical items you must be aware of. First off, if you can actually “pour” the concrete, you have added too much water, and the concrete has lost most, if not all of its strength. It is Critical you use the amount of water listed on the bag, and that means actually measuring it (I realize there are numerous Pros who can eye ball the amount, but the DIYer should always measure). Adding just a couple of extra cups of water can reduce the strength by 50%! In other words, you could develop cracks sooner than later. The second item I have found is that most people do not mix the product long enough. If you mix it just long enough to blend the ingredients, then place the concrete, it will harden up on you fast. By mixing an additional 3-4 minutes, the product will be more creamy (for lack of better words), and after you place it, you will have the proper time needed to screed it, the cream will rise to the top and finishing will be a breeze. Most DIYer's want to hurry like a mad man when dealing with concrete, when it should be the opposite. Each step in the process should be done in a timely manner, but never rushed. The whole process takes hours from mixing it to the final finish phase, so take a deep breath and don’t rush it. This is a great product for the DIYer as long as you are consistent with the water content from batch to batch. Plus, make sure that you mix it long enough. Doing both of these things will not only ensure you do a good job, but an excellent one as well. Cheers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DIY concrete We needed to replace a sidewalk that had been lifted and cracked by tree roots before winter arrived . It was only a portion of the sidewalk that needed replacing so I wanted to do it myself . When I saw that Home Depot offered delivery the very next day I was very happy as I was concerned about getting the product from store to home by ourselves and handling all that weight two extra times ! Also by purchasing a pallet I saved almost enough to pay for the delivery ! Hurray for Home Depot once again !!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pro-Loaders? Ordered 60 bags of Quikcrete. The product is fine (its concrete) and was ordered 12+ hours in advance of pickup. My delivery driver had to wait 30 minutes for HD staff to find the ticket/order. Then the "pro-loader" (an older guy 65+) needed my guy to do the loading-not some of it, all but one bag. Not worth the wait, the minimal $$$ savings, and certainly not worth the hassle.

They sell a more economical 80 lb bag; but for my aging body the 60 lb bags are about all I want to handle. I usually figure 3 bags for every 4 post.
