Question how much mix?

I'm capping off about 80 feet of block wall with standard size bricks, laid perpendicular (it will look like a "T" from cross-section). How much mortar mix will I need? Is there a formula to follow?

The place from which you will buy the mortar mix should have a chart giving you that information, if it is not listed on the bag itself.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful, but there is no magic formula that can account for the size of the brick (there is no standard size), the size of your mortar joint, the size of the bag of mortar, how much you spill on your shoes, etc.
