How much concrete in kg's do I need to concrete an area 3M x 3M x 125mm

Concrete is normally estimated in cubic metres
Convert all figures to metres and multiply
3 x 3 x 0.125 = 1.125 cubic metres
Plus 10% for shrinkage = 1.24 cubic metres
10 bags cement
0.7 cubic metres sand
0.86 cubic metres of stone
All assuming you want a strong mix

Area of 8'x6'x4" into cubic metres

By your above measurements:
2.67 yds long 2.0 yds qide .11 yds thick for .59 total cubic yds or
2.44 meters long 1.83 meters wide .1 meters thick for total cubic meters of .45 this is reasonable considering the meter is longer than the yard so the total meter would be less..

How many yards to cover 30ft/40ft 4 inches deep in concrete

That may be ok for the US, but in Europe you would need cubic metres.
I yd = 0.914 m, 1 cubic yd = 0.914 x .914 x .1914 = 0.764
So 14.66 cu. yds is 14.66 x 0.764 = 11.2 cubic metres - with a bit of luck!

How many cubic meters of concrete will it take to pour a garage fool 336 sq feet 6 inches deep

Figure 1 90 lb. bag per square ft., 6" deep.
Don't forget sand to grade and rebar to reinforce.
You probably won't find enough guys to mix all that concrete, so you'd really be better off hiring a concrete truck.
Tip: It's best to over estimate a little so you won't be caught short.

How do i know how many cubic meter of concrete pour in 50 squre meter and 50m

as in any volume calculation, follow this formula:

a x b x h = volume
a x b = area
h = height
all dimensions must be in same units, if you use m, all must be m, if you use ft, all units must be ft, use decimal not inches in imperial measurement.

in your example you give area of 50m2, you did not give what thickness of the slab, or should i assume this is 50m thick slab?!?

Cubic meter calculator

Cubic meters defines volume. You must know how thick the cement will be cast to determine the volume. Therefore in this case 4 x 1.4 x thickness of the casting in meters = cubic meters required. Make sure the thickness is in meters (250 millimeters = 0.25 meters - divide millimeter by 1000 to get meters)
