### How do I calculate brick steps?

1. Step1: Volume of 1 brick. = 0.19 m x 0.09 m x 0.09 m. = 0.001539 meter cube. Volume of 1 brick with mortar. = 0.198 m x 0.098 m x 0.098 m. = 0.0019 meter cube.
2. Step 2: Mortar Calculation. Volume covered by 526 bricks in 1 cum volume. = (Bricks number x volume of 1 brick) = 526 x 0.001539. = 0.81 meter cube. Mortar Volume.
