How many bags do I need?

I am in the process of setting up an aquarium with the following dimension 24" x 18" wide and 16" tall. With the floor space how many bags of flourite do you think I need. I thought I could get by with one, but it doesn't look like it's going to be sufficient. I'd like to have a gentle slope from the back. My plan is for some drift wood and a few rocks, but nothing that would significantly displace the substrate.

I'll probably splurge on another bag of flourite, but do you think this is sufficient?

Two bags should be alright. One will not be enough, especially for root heavy plants like Crypts and Swords.
