There are loads of online calculators, you need to input type of material, sizes and bed measurements.

Theres about 60 bricks per metre, a 25kg bag of dry mortar will lay approx 25 bricks, to lay 1000 bricks, which is about 16.5 square metres you will need about 1 ton of sand.

Try Googling, Onsite mortar calculator.
