Answer 1
Assume one bag is about 1/2 cu meter
Then it's 50cm deep at 1 sqm
If 1" = 2.5cm, one bag should cover 20 sqm at only one inch deep.

Answer 1
loose sand has a density of around 1400kg per metre cube but compacted sand is nearer 2100kg per cubic metre. Picking the midpoint of 1750kg/cu. metre to represent the density of sand in a bulk bag your 850kg will occupy approximately 0.5 cubic metres.

Spreading it to an even depth of 25mm (1") should cover an area of roughly 19-20 square metres.

Answer 1
sharp sand is best for preparing a bed for slabs for a shed. Mix in some cement and the moisture in the ground will harden it up slowly
