If a standard brick is 4 inches wide by 8 inches long, you'd need 648 of those bricks.

Here's the way you'd calculate it:

First, since your bricks are measured in inches, I'd convert your 6 foot by 24 foot measurements from feet to inches.

Since there are 12 inches per foot, 6 x 12 = 72 inches and 24 x 12 = 288

Then you can calculate the total area you are going to be laying brick in (in inches), so multiply 72 x 288 = 20736 square inches

The area of each of your bricks is 4 inches by 8 inches, so 8 x 4 = 32 square inches per brick

If your total area you want to brick is 20736 square inches, and each brick is 32 square inches, just divide 20736 by 32... which gives you 648. :)

You need 648 bricks. Convert 6 feet into 72 inches times by 24 feet converted to 288 inches which equal 20,736 square inches. A 4 x 8 inch brick is 32 square inches. Now take 20,736 inches and divide that by 32 which equals 648.

Approximately 648 bricks will be required. You have to revise that up a little bit for wastage.
