1. 32m=3200cm; 3m=300cm

Number of bricks required =

Volume of the wall/volume of a brick

3200*300*40/25*15*8

38,400,000/3000=12800

Number of bricks required is 12800

2. ## SOLUTION :-

=> For wall,

=> Converting into same units, we have ,

=> Length of the wall = 32m = 32 × 100 = 3200cm. => Breath of the wall = 3m = 3 × 100 = 300cm.

=> And the height = 40cm.

=> For brick,

=>Length of the brick = 25cm.

=>Breath of the brick = 15cm

=>Height of the brick = 8cm.

Now, we have to find number of required bricks.

=>Number of required bricks = Volume of wall / Volume of brick

=> Number of required bricks = 3200 × 300 × 40 / 25 × 15 × 8 .

=>Number of required bricks = 128 × 20 × 5.

=>Number of required bricks = 12800.

Hence, the required number of bricks is 12800.
