m20-for 7 days it should be 67% and for 28 days it should be 100%...formula for cube testing:
ex: m20
size of cube surface area is 15*15 =225/10=22.5

for m20 7 days 20 * 22.5 * 67% = 301.5 kn.
28 days 20 * 22.5 = 450 kn.

Ex for M 25.

Area of cube 150*150 mm=22500 mm2 so we need to n per mm2 so we get 22500/1000=22.5N/mm2

so M25 for 7 days load/area=so load should be above 16 n/mm2 = 67% Strength

M25 for 25 days load/area =so load should be above 563 KN 100% strength.
