500 no. of bricks(brick size - 20cm.*10cm.*10cm.) required
for 1 cum of brick masonry.

and suppose, ratio = 1:6
then , sum = 1+6 = 7
as we know, total dry mortar required for 1 cum. of brick
masonry = 0.30 cum.

therefore following dry matrial required.

cement = 1* 0.30/7 = .04 cum. *28.8 = 1.15 bags.

sand = 6* 0.30/7 = 0.26 cum.
or 0.26 cum. * 35.3 = 9.18 cft.

Material required for 1 cum. of brick masonry in mortar
ratio of 1:6.

cement = 1.15 bags.
sand = 9.18 cft.
bricks = 500 nos.
