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.**
