Student that needs help


Hi everyone.. I'm a Construction Student and I have been stuck on this problem
for two days now.. I'm currently learning how to calculate blocks and rebar.
Now we moved to labor hours.

I read the book back and forth and does not give me the formula to figure it out,.

The question on my homework is:
Determine the cost of the Lay of CMU Blocks
and the Labor Hours.

The SF is 1386.64SF


8.5 labor hours per 100sf of wall is $21.03
6 mason hour per 100sf of wall $42.00

Any help would so Tremendously appreciated!!
Thank you
Cali

From the information you provided I can only assume that the formula would be something like this:
(8.5 x $21.03 = $178.76) per 100 sq. ft. of wall + (6 x $42.00 = $252.00) per 100 sq. ft. of wall.
$178.76 + $252.00 = $430.76 per 100 sq. ft. of wall
You have 13.8664 (100 sq. ft. sections of wall)
so...$430.76 x 13.8664 = $5973.09 in labor costs.
Sound right?

Andy.

let me add if your labor costs are that high, you won't be getting any work this is an arithmetic problem, nothing else

That is low for this area, closer to $10,000 for that SqFt, but as noted it is just an arithmetic question.
