    I won't give the answer.

    But I'll help you come up with the answer.

    1st thing you need to fo is figure out how many square feet 1 paver equates to.

    Then do the math from there.

    The Pavers are in inches.

    There are 144 square inches to 1 sq ft.

    Multiply your Paver dimension(s).

    And divide that by 144.

    The answer will be how much of a square foot a Paver is.

    And the answer is..... 942.55 so round that up to 943. Then you will want to add 10-15% for waist.

    Your looking at around 1037

    You need to figure out how many square feet are on a pallet first and the n go from there.
