Enter the total number of bricks, the length, and the width of an area into the calculator to determine the number of bricks per square foot.

Bricks Per Square Foot Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the Bricks Per Square Foot .

BPSF = #B / (L*W)

  • Where BPSF is the number of bricks per square foot (bricks/ft^2)
  • #B is the number of bricks
  • L is the length of the area (ft)
  • W is the width of the area (ft)

To calculate the bricks per square foot, divide the total number of bricks by the area in square feet.

What is Bricks Per Square Foot ?

Definition:

Bricks per square foot define the total number of bricks in one unit of area, which in this case, is square feet.

How to Calculate Bricks Per Square Foot ?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines the steps and information needed to calculate Bricks Per Square Foot.

First, determine the total number of bricks. In this example, there are 1000 bricks used.

Next, determine the length and width of the area. For this problem, the length are width are 10ft and 13ft respectively.

Finally, calculate the bricks per square foot using the formula above:

BPSF = #B / (L*W)

BPSF = 1000/ (10*13)

BPSF = 7.69 bricks/ft^2
