Question about "ls" command output

I had somebody ask me what the total 304 was in the below output:

Mac-Mini:RemoveSymantecMacFiles$ ls -l
total 304
-rwxrwxrwx@ 1 user1  staff   27159 Oct 19 19:18 ReadMe.txt
-rwxrwxrwx@ 1 tuser1  staff  125872 Oct 19 19:18 RemoveSymantecMacFiles.command
Mac-Mini:RemoveSymantecMacFiles$ 

Open in new window


Not sure what that is referring to. Can anyone explain?

304 is the total number of blocks occupied.
