## How to use this calculator?

- Enter the height and width of the wall.
- Enter the height and width of the concrete blocks.
- Optionally, enter the price of a single block, allowing the calculator to estimate the total cost.

## How to calculate the number of concrete blocks needed for a wall?

Firstly, calculate the wall area and block area. In both cases, simply multiply the height by the width.

**Wall area**= Wall height * Wall width

**Block area**= Block height * Block width

Now, divide the wall area by the block area.

**Concrete Blocks Needed**= Wall area / Block area

Now you should round up the value to ensure you have enough blocks. Use the "ceil" rounding for this purpose.

### Example

Calculate the number of concrete blocks (16" x 8") needed for a wall (height: 6 ft, width: 25 ft))

**Wall area** = 6 ft * 25 ft = 150 ft²

**Block area** = 16 in * 8 in = 128 in² = (128 / 144) ft² ≈ 0.89 ft²

**Concrete blocks needed** = 150 / 0.89 ≈ 168.54 ≈ 169
