150 requires= 1 person

90000requires=persons

Therefore, 600 persons can sit in the hall.

Solution 4

Let h be height of the room.

1 person requires 16

75 person requires

Volume of room is 1200

Solution 5

Volume of melted single cube

Let a be the edge of the new cube.

Volume

Therefore, 6 cm is the edge of cube.

Solution 6

Solution 7

Let the side of a cube be 'a' units.

Total surface area of one cube

Total surface area of 3 cubes

After joining 3 cubes in a row, length of Cuboid =3a

Breadth and height of cuboid = a

Total surface area of cuboid

Ratio of total surface area of cuboid to the total surface area of 3 cubes

Solution 8

Solution 9

The area of the playground is 3650 m2 and the gravels are 1.2 cm deep. Therefore the total volume to be covered will be:

3650 x 0.012 =43.8 m3.

Since the cost of per cubic meter is Rs. 6.40, therefore the total cost will be:

43.8 x Rs.6.40 = Rs.280.32

Solution 10

Solution 11

External volume of the box=

Since, external dimensions are 27 cm, 19 cm, 11 cm; thickness of the wood is 1.5 cm.

Internal dimensions

Hence, internal volume of box=

(i)

Volume of wood in the box=

(ii)

Cost of wood

(iii)

Vol. of 4 cm cube=

Number of 4 cm cubes that could be placed into the box

Solution 12

Area of sheet= Surface area of the tank

Length of the sheetits width=Area of 4 walls of the tank +Area of its base

Length of the sheet 2.5 m=

Length of the sheet= 300.8 m

Cost of the sheet = 300.8 Rs 12.50 = Rs 3760

Solution 13

Let exterior height is h cm. Then interior dimensions are 78-3=75, 19-3=16 and h-3 (subtract two thicknesses of wood). Interior volume = 75 x 16 x (h-3) which must = 15 cu dm

= 15000 cm^3

(1 dm = 10cm, 1 cu dm = 10^3 cm^3).

15000= 75 x 16 x (h-3)

h-3 = 15000/(75x16) = 12.5 cm h = 15.5 cm.

Solution 14

(i)

If the side of the cube= a cm

The length of its diagonal= cm

And,

(ii)

Total surface area of the cube=

=

Solution 15

Given that the volume of the iron in the tube 192 cm3

Let the thickness of the tube

Side of the external square=

Ext. vol. of the tube its internal vol.= volume of iron in the tube, we have,

Therefore, thickness is 1 cm.

Solution 16

Let l be the length of the edge of each cube.

The length of the resulting cuboid=

Let width (b) = l cm and its height (h)= l cm

The total surface area of the resulting cuboid

Therefore, the length of each cube is 6 cm.

Solution 1

The length, breadth and height of a rectangular solid are in the ratio 5: 4: 2.

Let the length, breadth and height of a cuboid be 5x, 4x and 2x.

Total surface area of a Cuboid = 1216 cm3

2(lb + bh + lh) = 1216

2(20x2 + 8x2 + 10x2) = 1216

76x2 = 1216

x2 = 16

x = 4

Therefore, length = 5(4) = 20cm, breadth = 4(4) = 16cm and height = 2(4) = 8cm.
