If your bricks are laid with the long side making up the width and the short side making up the length:

6 feet is 72 inches, so you would need 9 bricks across.

24 feet is 288 inches, so you would need 72 bricks down.

9 x 72 = 648 bricks

OR

When you convert feet to inches and find the area of your walk, 72 x 288 is 20736 square inches.

Each brick is 32 square inches, so when you divide 20736 by 32 you'll get 648 bricks

a brick is 4 in x 8 in or 32 sq in.

6 ft is 72 in

24 ft is 288 in

72 in x 288 in is ? sq in

? divided by 32 sq in is the number of bricks needed

Think about it. 1 foot = 12 inches

You will get it, just draw it out on paper.

Good Luck.

Use it before you lose it.
