Solution: (a) Surface Area = 2(3×4 + 4×5 + 5×3) m2

= 2 (12 + 20 + 15) m2

= 2 (47) m2

= 94 m2

(b) Surface Area = 2 (4 x 1.7 + 1.7 x 2.3 + 2.3 x 4) cm2

= 2 (6.8 + 3.91 + 9.2) cm2

= 39.82 cm2

Solution: So, total quantity of water in the tank (72 x 60 x 18) cm3

Let, h be the level of water rises, then,

72 x 60 x h = 48 x 36 x 15

Or, h = 48 x 36 x 15 / 72 x 60

= 6

So, the level of water rises 6 cm.

(17) Find the volume of wood required for making the closed box with internal dimension, 20 cm by 12.5 cm by 9.5 cm, wood 1.25 cm thick.

Solution: So enternal length of the box is = 20 + (1.25 xd 2)

= 22.5 c m

Breadth = 12.5 + (1.25 x 2)

= 15 cm

Height = 9.5 + 2.5

= 12 cm

So, enternal volume = (22.5 x 15 x 12) cm3

= 2375 cm3

∴ Volume of wood (4050 – 2375) cm3

= 1,675 cm3

(17) Find the volume of wood required for making the open box with external dimensions 17.5 cm long, 14 cm wide, 10 cm high, wood 7.5 mm thick.

Solution: External length = 17.5 cm

Height = 10 cm

Internal length = (17.5 – 1.5) cm

= 16 cm

Internal breadth = (14 – 1.5) cm

= 12.5 cm

Internal height (10 – 0.75) cm

= 9.25 cm

∴ External volume (17.5 x 14 x 10) cm3

= 2450 cm3

Internal volume = (16 x 12.5 x 9.25)

= 1850 cm3

∴ Volume of wood = (2450 – 1850) cm3

= 600 cm3

(19) A field is a field is 30 M long and 18 metre broad .A pit 6 m long,4 m wide and 3 M deep is dug out from the middle of the field and the earth removed is evenly spread over the remaining area of the field find the rise in the level of the remaining part of the field in centimeters correct to one decimal place.

Solution:

Area of the field = (30 x 18) m2

= 540 m2

Area of the pit = (6 x 4) m2

= 24 m2

Remaining area = (540 – 24) m2

= 516 m2

But, rise of remaining part be ‘h’

∴ volume of earth = (6 x 4 x 3) m3

= 72 m3

But ‘h’ be the rise in the level of remaining part,

∴ 516 x h = 72

Or, h = 0.139534

∴ rise in height = 0.1395 m

= 13.9 cm

(20) An agricultural field is the farm of rectangle of length 20m and width 14m. A pit 6 m long, 3 m wide and 2.5 m deep is dug in the corner in the field and earth is taken out from the pit is spread uniformly over the remaining area of the field. Find the extent to which the level of the field has been raised.

Solution: Area of agricultural field = (20 x 14) m2

= 280 m2

Area of the pit = (6 x 3) m2

= 18 m2

Remaining area (280 – 18) m2

= 262 m2

Volume of earth = (6 x 3 x 2.5) m3

= 45 m3

Let the level rise is ‘h’

262 x h = 45

Or, h = 0.178

∴ level rise = 0.178 m

= 17.8 cm

(21) A certain quantity of wood costs Rs. 250 per m2. A solid cubical block of such wood is bought for Rs. 182.25. Calculate the volume of the block and use the method of factors to find the length of one edge of the block.

Solution:

23) Two cubes each with 8 cm edge and joined end to end. Find the surface area of the resulting cuboid.

Solution: When two cubes are join together then they form a cuboid,

Length of cuboid = (8 + 8) = 16 cm

Height = 8 cm.

∴ Surface area of cuboid = 2 (16 x 8 + 8 x 8 + 16 x 8)

= 2 (128 + 64 + 128)

= 2 (320)

= 640 m2

(24) The area of three adjacent faces of a cuboid are x, y, z. If the volume is V, prove that V2 = xyz

Let, the three edges of cuboid are A,B, C

∴ AB = x,

BC = y,

CA = 7

∴ V = ABC,

∴ (AB) x (BC) x (CA) = xyz

Or, A2B2C2 = xyz

Or, V2 = xyz

(25) A metal cube of edge 12 cm is melted and farmed into three smaller cubes. If the edges of two smaller cubes are 6 cm and 8 cm. Find the edge of third smaller cube.

Solution: ∴ let, the edge of third smaller cube is = ‘l’ cm

∴ 63 + 83 + l3 = 123

Or, l3 = 1000

Or, l = 10

∴ Edge of the smaller cube is = 10 cm.

(26) 50 students sit in a classroom, Each student requires 9 m2 on floor and 108 m3 in space. If the length of the room is 25 m, find its breadth and height.

∴ One student requires 9 m2 on the floor.

∴ 50 students require = 50 x 9

= 450 m2

∴ Let the breadth of the room is ‘b’

∴ 25 x b = 450

Or, b = 450 / 25 = 18

One student need 108 m3 volume in space

∴ 50 student requires = (50 x 108) m3

= 5400 m3

Let, the height of the room be ‘h’

∴ 25 x 18 x h = 5400

Or, h = 5400 / 25 x 18

= 12

∴ Height of the room be 12 metre.

(27) A cardboard shut is rectangular shape with dimensions 42 x 36 cm. From each one of its corner a square of 6 cm cut off. An open box is made of the remaining shut. Find the volume of the box.

Solution:

∴ A square of 6 cm cut off from each corner, then a open box is made,

Then length of the box = 42 – (2×6)

= 42 – 12

= 30 m

Breadth of the box = 36 – (2 x 6)

= 36 – 12

= 24 m

Height of the box = 6 m

So the volume of the open box is = (30 x 24 x 6) cm3

= (180 xd 24) cm3

= 4320 cm3

(28) Two cubes, each of volume 343 cm3 are joined end to end. Find the surface area of the resulting cuboid.

Solution:

Two cubes, each of volume 343 cm3 but ‘l’ be the edge of the cube,

∴ l3 = 343

L = 7

∴ Edge of cube = 7 cm

∴ Length of cuboid = (7 +7) cm

= 14 cm

Breadth of cuboid = 7 cm

Height of the cuboid = 7 cm

∴ Surface area = 2)14×7 + 7×7 + 7×14)

= 490 cm2
