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.

It is only 0.45 cubic feet to start with.

Answer: 
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.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 81 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by STAY AWAY: Iron Aggregate which rusts & pits surface within days Quikrete 60lb bags contain iron sulfide aggregates, pyrite or marcasites. Within 1-2 days after sidewalk pour, these aggregates make their way to the surface. Once they do, you will see unsightly rusty spots on your sidewalk's surface. These rusty spots are the iron aggregates. To make matter EVEN WORSE, this iron aggregate is soft - so soft you can easily scrape at it with a finger nail. It o0nly takes a couple of days for the iron aggregate to wear down leaving you with a pit in the surface! This compromises the integrity of your surface and the pit will grow very easily, especially if you live in the north east. For those that are going to say that I am mixing my concrete too thin, I have tried very stiff, medium stiff and thin and it makes no difference. These iron aggregates find their way to the surface no matter what. Think twice before using Quikrete. I will be contacting quickrete directly for a refund of my time and for the bags I purchased. I am not finished with the whole sidewalk and will be looking to use the other brand sold by HD's main competitor in hopes that it is better. June 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy, for Concrete! I've worked with this product in many projects with more being planned. I can handle it myself without too much trouble and have made stepping stone paths and set fence posts with it so far. My next project is a new door step. May 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 16, 2016

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Water amount seems off I tried to use Quikrete to lay some WalkMaker stones for a small patio. When I used the amount of water specified on the bag, the mix turned out very dry and crumbly. I had to add another 1-3 quarts of water to get the mix to resemble anything like what wet concrete should look like. If I ever do this again, I'll definitely rent a mixer and prep the base a little more than I did. Tough to get uniformity between bags, especially when adding color. June 26, 2015
