For ease of calculating, I'll assume the following: 1) There is no space between the bricks. 2) The 4 inch measure will be aligned with the 6 ft wide 3) The 8 inch measure will be aligned with the 24 ft length.

Step 1. Find how many 4 inch bricks it takes to make 6 ft.

The width is (6 ft x 12 in/ft). If you divide by the width of the brick, or 4 in, you'll find out how may bricks wide the wall is. So, (6 x 12)/4 = 6 x 3 = 18 bricks.

Step 2. Find how many 8 inch bricks it takes to make 24 ft.

The length is (24 ft x 12 in/ft). If you divide by the length of the brick, or 8 in, you'll find out how may bricks long the wall is. So, (24 x 12)/8 (factor to make the problem simpler = (2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 2 x 2)/(2 x 2 x 2) Now cancel out three of the 2's from the numerator and denominator = (3 x 3 x 2 x 2) = 36 bricks.

So the wall is 18 bricks x 36 bricks = 18 x 36 = 648 bricks.

Both the 6' and the 24' dimensions are evenly divisible by (2/3)', so the orientation of the bricks doesn't matter, and there are no cuts or leftovers. Of course, this calculation does not allow for anything to be put between the bricks, nor does it allow for rejects or breakage.

This all depends on high wide and long the path is going to be. If you make the width in 4 inch increments like 32 or 36 or 40 inch wide and the length by 8 inch increments like 160 or 200 ft long this will be easy to calculate as your brick pavers are 4 inches wide by 8 inches long

Each brick is 12 inches long 4 inches wide and 2 inches tall. The wall will be 6 feet long 4 inches wide and 10 inches long. How many bricks will Pam need to build the wall?
