To find the number of bricks or tiles when area of path and brick is given are discussed here. We need to divide area of path or wall by area of a brick or tile.
Number of bricks or tiles = area of path or wall ÷ area of a brick or tile.
For Example:
1. Find the number of bricks to be laid in a square path of side 18 cm, if the side of each brick is 3 cm.
Solution:
Area of path = 18 × 18 sq. cm.
Area of each brick = 3 × 3 sq. cm.
Therefore, number of bricks = area of path ÷ area of each brick.
= (18 × 18) ÷ (3 × 3)
= 324 ÷ 9
= 36
Therefore, number of bricks = 36.
2. Find the number of bricks to be laid in a square path of side 25 cm, if the side of each brick is 5 cm.
Solution:
Area of path = 25 × 25 sq. cm.
Area of each brick = 5 × 5 sq. cm.
Therefore, number of bricks = area of path ÷ area of each brick.
= (25 × 25) ÷ (5 × 5)
= 625 ÷ 25
= 25
Therefore, number of bricks = 25.
