Solution

## Total surface area of a cuboid is given by 2(lb + lh + bh) where l, b and h represent length, breadth and height of the cuboid repectively. Since area is equal to 208 cm2. => 2(lb + lh + bh) = 208 => Lb + hL + bh = 104 => 4L + 6L + 24 = 104 => 10L = 80 => L = 8 cm Hence, length of the cuboid is 8 cm.
