Question 1.
Three metal cubes whose edges measure 3 cm, 4 cm and 5 cm respectively are melted to form a single cube find (1) side – length (2) total surface area of the new cube. What is the difference between total surface area of the new cube and the sum of total surface areas of the original cubes?
Solution:
Volume of a cube = l3
Volume of cube 1 = 33 = 27 cm3
Volume of cube 2 = 43 = 64 cm3
Volume of cube 3 = 53 = 125 cm3
The volume of 3 cubes = 216 cm3
Volume of the New cube formed = 216 cm3
l3 = 216
l = 3√216 =6 cm
∴ (i) side – length = 6 cm

(ii) T.S.A of New cube = 6 l2
= 6 x 62 = 6 x 36 = 216 cm2
T.S.A of cube 1 = 6 × l2 = 6 × 32 = 6 × 9 = 54 cm2
T.S.A of cube 2 = 6 × l2 – 6 × 42 = 6 × 16 = 96 cm2
T.S.A of cube 3 = 6 × l2 = 6 × 52 = 6 × 25 = 150 cm2
Total T.S.A of 3 cubes = 300 cm2

(iii) Difference between the surface areas = 300 – 216 = 84 cm2 Question 2.
Two cubes, each of volume 512 cm3 are joined end to end. Find the lateral and total surface areas of resulting cuboid. Solution:
Volume of a cube = 512 cm3
l3 = 512
l = 3√512 = 8 cm
When two cubes joined end to end the length of the resulting cuboid = 8 + 8 = 16 cm, breadth = 8 cm and height = 8 cm.
L.S.A of cuboid = 2h (l + b)
= 2 × 8 (16 + 8) = 16 (24)
= 384 cm2
T.S.A of cuboid = 2(lb + bh + lh)
= 2[16 × 8 + 8 × 8 +16 × 8]
=2 [128 + 64 + 128]
= 2  = 640 cm2 Question 3.
The length, breadth and height of a cuboid,are in the ratio 6 : 5 : 3. If the total surface area is 504 cm2 find its dimensions. Also find the volume of the cuboid.
Solution:
l : b : h = 6 : 5 : 3
Let the length, breadth and height be 6x, 5x and 3x respectively.
T.S.A of cuboid = 504 cm2
2(lb + bh + lh) = 504
2[6x × 5x + 5x × 3x + 6x × 3x] = 504
2 [30x2 + 15x2 + 18x2] = 504
2[63x2] = 504
126x2 = 504
x2 = $$\frac{504}{126}$$ = 4
x = √4 = 2cm
l = 6x = 6 × 2 = 12 cm, b = 5x = 5 × 2 = 10 cm,
h = 3x = 3 × 2 – 6 cm
Volume = lbh = 12 × 10 × 6 = 720 cm3 Question 4.
Find the area of four walls of a room having length, breadth, and heighnt as 8m, 5m and 3m respectively. Find the cost of white washing the walls at the rate of Rs. 15/m2.
Solution:
l = 8m, b = 5m, h = 3m, L.S.A = ?
Area of the 4 walls = L.S.A of cuboid
= 2h (l + b) = 2 × 3. (8 + 5) = 6 (13)
Area of the 4 walls = 78 m2
The cost of white washing 1 m2 = Rs.15
The cost of white washing 78 m2 = 78 × 15
= Rs. 1170

Question 5.
A room is 6m long, 4m broad and 3m high. Find the cost of laying tiles on its floor and four walls at the cost of Rs. 80/m3.
Solution ‘
l = 6m, b = 4m, h = 3m
Area on. which tiles are to be laid
= Area of the base + LSA = lb + 2h (l + b) ‘
= 6 × 4 + 2 × 3 (6 + 4)
= 24 + 6(10)
= 24 + 60 = 84 m2
The cost for laying tiles for 1 m2 = Rs.80
The cost for laying tiles for 84 m2
= 84 × 80 = Rs. 6720 Question 6.
The length, breadth and height of a cuboid are in the ratio 5:3: 2. If its volume is 1078.110 mm3 find its dimensions. Also find the total surface area of the cuboid.
Solution:
l : b : h = 5 : 3 :2, Volume = 1078.110 mm3
Volume = 1078.110 mm3
l × b × h = 1078.110
5x × 3x × 2x = 1078.110
x3 = $$\frac{1078.110}{30}$$ = 35.937
x = 3√35.937
x = 3.3 m
5x = 5 × 3.3 = 16.5 m
3x = 3 × 3.3 = 9.9 m
2x = 2 × 3.3 = 6,6 m
The dimensions are 16.5 m, 9.9m, 6.6 m.
T.S.A =2(lb + bh + lh)
= 2[16.5 × 9.9 + 9.9 × 6.6 +16.5 × 6.6]
= 2[163.35 + 65.34 + 108.9]
= 2[337.59] = 675.18 m3

Question 7.
Suppose the perimeter of one face of a cube is 24 cm what is its volume?
Solution:
Perimeter = 24cm
4l = 24; l = $$\frac{24}{4}$$ = 6
l = 6
Volume = l3 – 63
Volume = 216 cm3 Question 8.
A wooden box has inner dimension l = 6m, b = 8m and h = 9m and it has uniform thickness of 10cm. The lateral surface of the outerside has to be painted at the rate of 50/m2. What is the cost of painting?
Solution:
Inner length of 6m. The thickness is 10 cm
∴ the outer length is 6m + 20 cm = 6.2 m
Similarly the outer breadth is 8 m + 20 cm = 8.2 m
The height is 9 m + 20 m = 9.2 m of the box is 9m + 20 cm = 9.2 m
L.S.A of outer surface = 2h (l + b)
= 2 × 9.2 [6.2 + 8.2] = 18.4 (14.4)
= 264.96 m2
Area to be painted = 264.96 m2
The cost of painting 1 sq m = Rs. 50
The cost of painting 264.96 m2 = 264.96 × 50 = Rs. 13,248

Question 9.
Each edge of a cube is increased by 20%. What is the percentage increase in the volume of the cube?
Solution:
Let the length of each side by 1 cm
∴ Volume of cube = l3 = l3 = 1 cm3
If the length is increased by 20% the length of each side is 1.2 cm.
∴ Volume of the new cube is = (1.2)3
= 1.728 cm3
Increase in the volume
= 1.728 – 1 = 0.728
∴ The percentage increase is
= 0.728 × 100 = 72.8% Question 10.
Suppose the length of a cube is increased by 10% and its breadth is decreased by 10% will the volume of the new cuboid be the same as that of the cube? What about the total surface areas? If they change what would be the percentage change in both the cases?
Solution:
Let the length, breadth and height of the cube be 1 cm.
Length is increased by 10%
∴ length = 1.1 cm Breadth is decreased by 10%
∴ breadth = 0.9cm height remains the same.
Volume of cube = l3 – l3 = 1 cm3
Volume of cuboid = lbh =1.1 × 0.9 × 1 = 0.99 cm3
Difference in volume = 1 – 0.99 = 0.01 cm3
Percentage in decrease = 0.01 × 100 = 1 %
T.S.A of cube = 6 l2 = 6 × 12 = 6 cm2
T.S.A of cuboid = 2 (lb + bh + lh)
= 2 [1.1 × 0:9 + 0.9 × 1 + 1.1 × 1]
= 2 [0.99 + 0.9 + 1.1] = 2 [2.99]
= 5.98 cm2
Difference in T.S.A = 6 – 5.98 = 0.02
Percentage in decrease = 0.02 × 100
= 42% error: Content is protected !!
