    Yes, don't even need a calculator for this one. Make an estimate first with easier bigger numbers, to see if you need to bother with a calculator. Figure if she was going to build it 40 tall and 350 wide, 40 is 2x2x10, 350 twice is 700, 700 twice is 1400, times 10 is 14,000 bricks, to build a 350 by 40 wall. She'd have plenty.

    Of course when I was in high school the math teachers hated me. Show the work, show the work, blah blah blah... Sometimes logic is easier than math.

    It's a maths question, so I suspect you'd be required to show your workings. She needs 332x39 bricks, which is 12948 bricks, less than the 15000 she has.  She has enough.

    Let's check the math ... 332 x 39 = 12,948 .... which is less than 15,000 ... so yes, Katie has enough bricks.
