how-to create mortar bed for tub?

hello,

i'm in the process of framing a new bathroom, and installing a 3-piece acrylic tub and shower unit. the tub instructions say to create a mortar bed with quickrete for the tub to sit on.

what else does the process involve? do i just frame out a box the width and length of the tub? how much mortar do i put in? do i need to do anything to strengthen the subfloor?

thanks for any help

They probably mean to just spread some mortar on the floor wet and set the tub in it for support.
