    A cement block is 8"X8"x12".
    Therefore you will need 150 blocks per course.
    A course is 8" high.
    The number of courses you will need is the height of the fence in inches divided by 8.
    Therefore you will need 150xheigth (in inches)/8.

    Silly question. Why is this in the sports forum, sub category fencing. This section is for the sport of fencing, not building a fence.
