1. There are two cuboidal boxes as shown in the adjoining figure. Which box requires the lesser amount of material to make?

**Solution:**(a)Â Given: Length of cuboidal boxÂ (l)Â = 60 cm

Breadth of cuboidal boxÂ (b) Â = 40 cm

Height of cuboidal boxÂ (h) Â = 50 cm

Total surface area of cuboidal box =Â 2Ã—(lb+bh+hl)

= 2Ã—(60Ã—40+40Ã—50+50Ã—60)

= 2Ã—(2400+2000+3000)

= 14800Â cm^{2}

(b)Â Length of cubical box (l) = 50 cm

Breadth of cubicalbox (b) = 50 cm

Height of cubicalbox (h) = 50 cm

Total surface area of cubical box = 6(side)^{2}

= 6(50Ã—50)

= 6Ã—2500

= 15000

Surface area of the cubical box is 15000 cm^{2}

From the result of (a) and (b), cuboidal boxÂ requires the lesser amount of material to make.

2. A suitcase with measures 80 cmÂ xÂ 48 cmÂ xÂ 24 cm is to be covered with a tarpaulin cloth. How many meters of tarpaulin of width 96 cm is required to cover 100 such suitcases?

**Solution: **Length of suitcase box, l = 80 cm,

Breadth of suitcase box, b= 48 cm

And Height of cuboidal box , h = 24 cm

Total surface area of suitcase box = 2(lb+bh+hl)

= 2(80Ã—48+48Ã—24+24Ã—80)

= 2 (3840+1152+1920)

= 2Ã—6912

= 13824

Total surface area of suitcase box is 13824Â cm^{2}

Area of Tarpaulin cloth = Surface area of suitcase

lÃ—b = 13824

l Ã—96 = 13824

l = 144

Required tarpaulin for 100 suitcases = 144Ã—100 = 14400 cm = 144 m

Hence tarpaulin cloth required to cover 100 suitcases is 144 m.

3. Find the side of a cube whose surface area is 600cm^2 .

**Solution:**Surface area of cube = 600 cm^{2} (Given)

Formula for surface area of a cube = 6(side)^{2}

Substituting the values, we get

6(side)^{2} = 600

(side)^{2} = 100

Or side = Â±10

Since side cannot be negative, the measure of each side of a cube is 10 cm

**4. Rukshar painted the outside of the cabinet of measure 1 mÂ Ã—2 mÂ Ã—1.5 m. How much surface area did she cover if she painted all except the bottom of the cabinet?**

**Solution**:Length of cabinet, lÂ = 2 m, Breadth of cabinet, b = 1 m and Height of cabinet, h Â = 1.5 m

Surface area of cabinet =Â lb+2(bh+hl )

= 2Ã—1+2(1Ã—1.5+1.5Ã—2)

= 2+2(1.5+3.0)

= 2+9.0

= 11

Required surface area of cabinet is 11m^{2}.

5. Daniel is paining the walls and ceiling of a cuboidal hall with length, breadth and height of 15 m, 10 m and 7 m respectively. From each can of paint 100Â m^2of area is painted. How many cans of paint will she need to paint the room?

**Solution:**Length of wall, l Â = 15 m, Breadth of wall, b = 10 m and Height of wall, h Â = 7 m

Total Surface area of classroom = lb+2(bh+hl )

= 15Ã—10+2(10Ã—7+7Ã—15)

= 150+2(70+105)

= 150+350

= 500

Now, Required number of cans =Â Area of hall/Area of one can

= 500/100 = 5

Therefore, 5 cans are required to paint the room.

6. Describe how the two figures below are alike and how they are different. Which box has larger lateral surface areas?

**Solution:**

Diameter of cylinder = 7 cm (Given)

RadiusÂ of cylinder, r Â =Â 7/2 Â cm

Height of cylinder, hÂ = 7 cm

Lateral surface area of cylinder = 2Ï€rh

=Â 2Ã—(22/7)Ã—(7/2)Ã—7 = 154

So, Lateral surface area of cylinder is154 cm^{2}

Now, lateral surface area of cube =Â 4 (side)^{2}=4Ã—7^{2}Â = 4Ã—49 = 196

Lateral surface area of cube is 196 cm^{2}

Hence, the cube has larger lateral surface area.

7. A closed cylindrical tank of radius 7 m and height 3 m is made from a sheet of metal. How much sheet of metal is required?

**Solution:**

Radius of cylindrical tank, r Â = 7 m

Height of cylindrical tankÂ , hÂ = 3 m

Total surface area of cylindrical tank = 2Ï€r(h+r)

=Â 2Ã—(22/7)Ã—7(3+7)

= 44Ã—10 = 440

Therefore, 440Â m^{2}Â metal sheet is required.

8. The lateral surface area of a hollow cylinder is 4224cm^{2}. It is cut along its height and formed a rectangular sheet of width 33 cm. Find the perimeter of rectangular sheet?

**Solution:** Lateral surface area of hollow cylinder = 4224Â cm^{2}

Height of hollow cylinder, h = 33 cm and say r be the radius of the hollow cylinder

Curved surface area of hollow cylinder = 2Ï€rh

4224 =Â 2Ã—Ï€Ã—rÃ—33

r =Â (4224)/(2Ï€Ã—33)

r =Â 64/Ï€

Now, Length of rectangular sheet, l =Â 2Ï€r

lÂ = 2 Ï€Ã—(64/Ï€) = 128 (using value of r)

So the length of the rectangular sheet is 128 cm.

Also, Perimeter of rectangular sheet =Â 2(l+b)

= 2(128+33)

= 322

The perimeter of rectangular sheet is 322 cm.

9. A road roller takes 750 complete revolutions to move once over to level a road. Find the area of the road if the diameter of a road roller is 84 cm and length 1 m.

**Solution:**

Diameter of road roller, d = 84 cm

Radius of road roller, r = d/2 = 84/2 = 42 cm

Length of road roller, hÂ = 1 m = 100 cm

Formula for Curved surface area of road roller =Â 2Ï€rh

=Â 2Ã—(22/7)Ã—42Ã—100 = 26400

Curved surface area of road roller is 26400 cm^{2}

Again, Area covered by road roller in 750 revolutions = 26400Ã—750cm^{2}

= 1,98,00,000cm^{2}

= 1980 m^{2} Â [âˆµÂ 1Â m^{2}= 10,000 cm^{2}]

Hence the area of the road is 1980 m^{2}.

10. A company packages its milk powder in cylindrical container whose base has a diameter of 14 cm and height 20 cm. Company places a label around the surface of the container (as shown in figure). If the label is placed 2 cm from top and bottom, what is the area of the label?

**Solution:**Diameter of cylindrical container , d = 14 cm

Radius of cylindrical container, r = d/2 = 14/2 Â = 7 cm

Height of cylindrical container = 20 cm

Height of the label, say h = 20â€“2â€“2 (from the figure)

= 16 cm

Curved surface area of label = 2Ï€rh

=Â 2Ã—(22/7)Ã—7Ã—16

= 704

Hence, the area of the label is 704 cm^{2}.
