anyone got any good examples of the "typology" of possible questions that involve masonry units and (or) unit conversions?
i'm using masonry as an example but in particular i would like to work some cost examples based on linear and/or area amounts that also involve a unit conversion. i.e. the question providing a cost in square feet (?) and the answers provided in square inches (?) or something? are there other unit conversions we should be able to work? personally i've never run into a construction material cost or amount provided in square inches so if i need to know how to do this i would like to not figure it out on an exam.
also i don't do much calculation of brick and don't know whether i should be incorporating the brick width or just the area of the wall or whatnot.
personally i think we should have some board feet calculations in this exam but whatever.
