 Sourav said: (Nov 10, 2014) 1m3/(.2mx.1mx.1m). = 500 no.

 Ravi Mehta said: (Feb 1, 2015) @Sourav. I am agree with you. But do you think in practical case you need only 500 bricks. As an engineer you should need some more quantity of bricks because some brick may be broken or waste during its use.

 Anu said: (Feb 13, 2016) I don't understand. Please give correct and clear calculation.

 Shruthi said: (Feb 13, 2016) Explain it? How?

 Harshitha said: (Mar 28, 2016) Totally 513 bricks are required.

 Mayank Sharma said: (Apr 23, 2016) Brick size = 19 x 9 x 9cm. Size with mortar = 20 x 10 x 10cm. Masonry size = 100 x 100 x 100cm. Masonrysize/bricksize with mortar. = 100 x 100 x 100/20 x 10 x 10. = 500. Hope you will understand now.

 Subhankar Mal said: (May 12, 2016) Thanks for explaining the solution @M Sharma.

 Dipali said: (Jul 20, 2016) I think the right answer is 550.

 @Raja said: (Aug 15, 2016) 550 is given in Khurmi Gupta book. So which one is correct?

 Yusuf Ghadiyali said: (Sep 1, 2016) 10% wastage is considered. So correct answer is 10% of 500 = 50. So, total bricks are 550.

 Dipali said: (Oct 4, 2016) I agree with you @Yusuf Ghadiyali.

 Anil Kumar said: (Dec 29, 2016) In RS Khurmi it is given 550. But here it is 500. Which is the correct answer? Please tell me.

 Dilip Sahu said: (Feb 4, 2017) As per my calculation, I got 450. Why not 450?

 Anil said: (Mar 3, 2017) In market, brick available size is 9 * 4 * 3. i.e. 0.23mX0.1mX0.8m. So, for brick masonry number of bricks required is 348 nos./1 CuM.

 Sachin said: (Jun 16, 2017) which is correct one, 500 or 550?

 Aruna said: (Jun 17, 2017) 550 is the right answer.

 Sanjeev said: (Aug 3, 2017) 500 is right because motor is covered in 50 bricks of space.

 Sourav said: (Aug 24, 2017) I think it is 550.

 Manish Kumar said: (Aug 31, 2017) THE STANDARD SIZE OF BRICK IS 190 X 90 X 90, BUT IF WE CONSIDER MORTAR ALSO, THEN THIS SIZE BECOMES 200X10X10. SO THE NUMBER OF BRICK =SPACE VOLUME /(VOLUME OF ONE BRICK) ,1/(.20X.10X.10) = 500.

 Bharat Sharma said: (Dec 22, 2017) You are the wrong @Anil. Right @Manish.

 Lucky said: (Dec 23, 2017) 550 bricks is correct.

 Nasir said: (Jan 8, 2018) 550 with wastage.

 Ajit said: (Jan 8, 2018) 550 is the right answer.

 Pavithra said: (Feb 1, 2018) 1/.2*.1*.1 = 500.

 Aijaz said: (Mar 18, 2018) Nominal size of brick =.2*1*.1=0.002m^3. No.of bricks in one cubic metre = 1m^3/nominal size of a brick. =1/0.002, =500 bricks. Standard size of brick=.19*.09*.09 =1.539*10^-3. No.of bricks=1/standard size =650 bricks.

 Atea said: (Apr 16, 2018) The Correct answer is 550 no's with 10% wastage.

 Anil said: (Apr 22, 2018) The Right answer is 550.

 Tofik said: (Sep 26, 2018) How many traditions brick is required in 1 cubic meter?

 Narendra Uniyal said: (Oct 19, 2018) Which is the correct answer 500 or 550?

 Dalhatu Saleh said: (Jan 18, 2019) I don't think we should consider any wasted brick, we are asked at normal condition how many bricks will fill 1 m3 space. That is all. Hence 500 is the answer.

 Chinmay Buddhadev said: (Mar 29, 2019) 500 is the correct answer. 550 would be the answer if it was asked how many bricks could be stored in one cubic metre. As it is asked in masonary, mortar will also consume the space so correct answer is 500 only.

 Savata Mali said: (Jan 18, 2020) The correct answer is 550. Because in question it is asked a number of bricks required. 550 with wastage is correct.

 Pawan Pandey said: (Apr 20, 2020) 550 is the correct answer.

 Asghar Badshah said: (Aug 29, 2020) @All. 500 Nos of Bricks is the correct answer and in my observations, it also includes the 5% wastage as well. So 1 cubic meter Quantity of Wall Contains 500 Nos Of Bricks.

 Amar Mhetre said: (Mar 8, 2021) 500 is the right answer. Because of the standard condition.
