How do I measure a brick pillar.


I've been asked to measure a 350mm x 350mm by 1050mm brick gate post, I'm trying to work out the M2 but I'm going round in circles.

Would it be best to measure one side i.e 350mm x 1050mm and then multiply by the 4 sides to get the answer.

so 0.35m x 1.05m = 0.36 then 0.36 x 4 = 1.47m2?

Is this the right way to do it?

0.35 m x 0.35 m x 1.05 m define a volume, not an area. Are you sure you are not supposed to find the cubic meters?

Just multiply length x width x height: 0.35 m x 0.35 m x 1.05 m = 0.123 cubic meters.
