the most important thing is that you must make clear all the measurements : ft, in and yard. 1ft = 12 in, 1 yard = 3 ft. so the sidewalk is 52/3 yard by 1 yard to a depth of 1/4 ft. the volume of concrete required should be 52/3*1*1/4=13/3≈4.5 cubic yard.

Shouldn't the 1/4 ft be changed to 1/12 yard?
