    The soil sample would have shown signs of being 35-55% clay, 65-85% sand, it would also have shown small amounts of silt. If you look at the chart it shows the percentages of the amounts of clay, sand, and silt. Sandy clay has a high percentage of sand, a slightly less percentage of clay, and a small amount of silt if any.
