# 3
1# Brick calculation
size of brick eg:- 200mmx10mmx10mm
1/.20x0.1x0.1 =500nos/cum.

2#Cement :- 0.3/1+5=0.05cum
:- 0.05x28.8=1.44bags.

3#Sand :- 5x0.05=0.25cum

# 4
Volume of Dry Mortar = 35% of volume of Brickwork

Volume of Mortar required = 0.35 X 1 = 0.35 cu.m.

Cement required = 1/6 X 0.35 = 0.058 cu.m. = 1.67 Bags

Sand required = 5/6 X 0.35 = 0.292 cu.m.

Bricks required = 500 Nos.

# 5
Volume of Dry Mortar = 35% of volume of Brickwork

Volume of Mortar required = 0.35 + 1 = 1.35 cu.m.

Cement required = 1/6 X 1.35 = 0.225 cu.m. =6.8Bags

Sand required = 5/6 X 1.35 = 1.125 cu.m.

Bricks required = 500 Nos.

# 7
brick = 480 (as pr calculation)
.3= dry volume of brick mortar
cement = .3*28.8/total of ratio(6)
= 1.44 begs in one cum
sand = .3*quantity of sand(5)/total of ratio
= .255 for one cum

 Is This Answer Correct ? 14 Yes 2 No
