Answer / nouman quqntity sarvair from s

volume of brick= .75'x.25'x.375'
volume=.070cu ft
now in 100 cft = 100/0.070
=> 1428.57 nomber of bricks
now 10% mortar /////
deduction of mortorr= 10x1428.85/100 = 142.85
nomber of bricks
so net number of bricks = 1428.57-142.85= 1285.72
now for contengencies = 5%
so => 5x1285.72/100= 64.28
now total nomber of bricks= 64.28+1285.72=1350.006 NOMBER OF

Answer / waseem ahmed

in Pakistan
13.5 bricks are considered in one cubic feet as standard, because of uneven brick size, normally if the standard size is taken (9"X4.5"X3") it becomes 121.5 cubic feet and if you convert 1 cubic feet it will be 1728" (12"X12"X12"), on dividing 1728/121.5= 14.2 bricks in one cubic feet, and if you exclude 25% mortar from cubic inches(1728) it will be 1296, now if you divide cubic inches with standard brick volume 121.5 you will get 10.6 bricks in a cubic feet, but due to uneven and improper shaping which varies from city to city and more breakage during logistic a 27% wastage is calculated on the number of bricks which is almost 13.54, there fore it is considered in Pakistan 13.5 bricks in a cubic feet.

but The problem is that if we find the quantity of mortar in masonry wall we consider that 30cft mortar use in 100cft masonry wall. and if we find the numbers of bricks we deduct 10% mortar from 100cft. so in this situation we deduct 10% and if we find numbers of bricks its 30%. so some problem created here plz solve the problem.
