Answer



A stone wall isnt built with bricks...
[/COLOR][/LEFT]

a stone = 6.35029318 kilograms and as the weight of the bricks weren't given the answer couldn't be mathimatical.

The answer is 4 bricks stacked on end make a 6"X6"X4' wall.

You said you "want" to build a stone wall, and you wrote "How many bricks will you need to make a wall 6" wide & 4' tall ?"


What the riddle should have read was

"You want to build a stone wall around your 12'x20' garden. If the bricks are 6" high & 6" wide and 1' long. How many bricks will you need to make a stone wall 6" wide, 4' tall, and 64' long?

gotcha

A man walks into a room, sits on a 3 legged stool, and has a plate of food on his lap. The plate has a chicken leg, or leg of lamb on it.
A dog runs in, grabs the food, and runs away
The man jumps up, grabs the stool and throws it at the dog, who promptly drops the chicken leg, and the man gets it back!

HOWZZATT?
