    What you're missing is that the bucket is a triangle shape and you're doing the math as if it was a square. Without having exact measurements of the sides I couldn't do an accurate calculation but if the square would be 3.1 it seems as if 1.8 would be right for the triangle shape of the bucket.

    The front angles so you have to take that into account. Similar to figuring the square footage of a triangle.
