**Solutions:**

(i) Given Length=22cm, breadth=12cm and height=7.5cm

We know that volume of cuboid= length Ã— breadth Ã— height

V = (22 Ã— 12 Ã— 7.5)

V = 1980cm^{3}

We know that total surface area of cuboid= 2(l b + b h + h l)

Surface area = 2 (22 Ã— 12 + 12 Ã— 7.5 + 7.5 Ã— 22)

Surface area = 2 (264 + 165 + 90)

Total Surface area = 1038cm^{2}

We know that lateral surface area of cuboid= 2 [(l + b) Ã— h]

Lateral surface area = 2 [(22 + 12) Ã— 7.5]

Lateral surface area = 510 cm^{2}

(ii) Given Length=15m, breadth=6m and height=9dm=0.9m

We know that volume of cuboid= length Ã— breadth Ã— height

V = (15 Ã— 6 Ã— 0.9)

V = 81m^{3}

We know that total surface area of cuboid= 2(l b + b h + h l)

Surface area = 2 (15 Ã— 6 + 6 Ã— .9 + .9 Ã— 15)

Surface area = 2 (90 + 13.5 + 5.4)

Total Surface area = 217.8m^{2}

We know that lateral surface area of cuboid= 2 [(l + b) Ã— h]

Lateral surface area = 2 [(15 + 6) Ã— 0.9]

Lateral surface area = 37.8 m^{2}

(iii) Given Length=24m, breadth=25cm and height=6m

We know that volume of cuboid= length Ã— breadth Ã— height

V = (24 Ã— 0.25 Ã— 6)

V = 36m^{3}

We know that total surface area of cuboid= 2(l b + b h + h l)

Surface area = 2 (24 Ã— .25 + .25 Ã— 6 + 6 Ã— 24)

Surface area = 2 (6 + 144 + 1.5)

Total Surface area = 303m^{2}

We know that lateral surface area of cuboid= 2 [(l + b) Ã— h]

Lateral surface area = 2 [(24 + .25) Ã— 6]

Lateral surface area = 291 m^{2}

(iv) Given Length=48cm, breadth=6dm and height=1m

We know that volume of cuboid= length Ã— breadth Ã— height

V = (0.48 Ã— 0.6 Ã— 1)

V = 0.288m^{3}

We know that total surface area of cuboid= 2(l b + b h + h l)

Surface area = 2 (0.48 Ã— 0.6 + 0.6 Ã— 1 + 1 Ã— 0.48)

Surface area = 2 (.288 + 0.6 + 0.48)

Total Surface area = 2.736m^{2}

We know that lateral surface area of cuboid= 2 [(l + b) Ã— h]

Lateral surface area = 2 [(0.48 + 0.6) Ã— 1]

Lateral surface area = 2.16 m^{2}

**2. The dimensions of a rectangular water tank are 2m 75cm by 1m 80cm by 1m 40cm. How many litres of water does it hold when filled to the brim?**

Dimension of the tank is 2m 75cm and 1m 80cm and 1m 40cm

Which can be written as 275cm Ã— 180 cm Ã— 140 cm

Also we know that volume of cuboid = length Ã— breadth Ã— height

V = 275 Ã— 180 Ã— 140

V = 6930000cm^{3}

And we know that 1000cm^{3}= 1L

Therefore V=6930 litres of water it holds when filled to the brim.

**3. A solid rectangular piece of iron measures 1.05m Ã— 70cm Ã— 1.5cm. Find the weight of this piece in kilograms if 1cm ^{3}of iron weighs 8 grams.**

Dimension of the iron piece is 1.05m and 70cm and 1.5cm.

Also we know that volume of cuboid = length Ã— breadth Ã— height

V = 105 Ã— 70 Ã— 1.5

V = 11025cm^{3}

And we know that 1cm^{3}= 8 grams

Weight of iron piece = 11025 Ã— 8 = 88200g

But 1kg=1000g

Weight of iron piece = 88.2kg

**4. The area of courtyard is 3750 m ^{2}. Find the cost of covering it with gravel to a height of 1cm if the gravel costs â‚¹ 6.40 per cubic meter.**

**Solution: **

We know that volume of cuboid = length Ã— breadth Ã— height

V = 120 Ã— 72 Ã— 54 = 466560 cm^{3}

Volume of each bar soap = 6 Ã— 4.5 Ã— 4 = 108 cm^{3}

^{ }Therefore, total number of bars of soaps can be accommodated in a box is

Volume of the box/ volume of each soap

= 466560/108

= 4320 bars

**Solution:**

We know that volume of cuboid = length Ã— breadth Ã— height

Volume occupied by single matchbox = 4 Ã— 2.5 Ã— 1.5 = 15 cm^{3}

Volume of a packet containing 144 matchboxes = 15 Ã— 144 = 2160 cm^{3}

^{ }Volume of carton is 1.5cm Ã— 84cm Ã— 60 cm = 150 x 84 x 60 = 756000 cm^{3}

^{ }Therefore, total number of packets can be accommodated in a carton is

Volume of the carton/ volume of a packet containing 144 matchboxes

= 756000/2160

= 350 packets

**8. How many planks of size 2cm Ã— 25cm Ã— 8 cm can be prepared from a wooden block 5m long, 70cm broad and 32 cm thick, assuming that there is no wastage?**

**Solution:**

We know that volume of cuboid = length Ã— breadth Ã— height

Volume of the block = 500 Ã— 70 Ã— 32 = 1120000 cm^{3}

Volume of each plank = 200 Ã— 25 Ã— 8= 40000 cm^{3}

^{ } Therefore, total number of planks that can be made

= Volume of the block/ volume of the each plank

= 1120000/40000

= 28 planks

**9. How many bricks, each of size 25 cm Ã— 13.5cm Ã— 6 cm, will be required to build a wall 8 m long, 5.4 m high and 33cm thick?**

**Solution: **

We know that volume of cuboid = length Ã— breadth Ã— height

Volume of the brick = 25 Ã— 13.5 Ã— 6 = 2025 cm^{3}

Volume of the wall = 800 Ã— 540 Ã— 33= 14256000 cm^{3}

^{ } Therefore, total number of bricks required

=Volume of the wall/ volume of the each brick

= 14256000/2025

= 7040 bricks

**10. A wall 15m long, 30cm wide and 4m high is made of bricks, each measuring 22 cm Ã— 12.5cm Ã— 7.5 cm. If 1/12 of the total volume of the wall consists of mortar, how many bricks are there in the wall?**

**Solution:**

We know that volume of cuboid = length Ã— breadth Ã— height

Volume of the wall = 1500 Ã— 30 Ã— 400 = 18000000 cm^{3}

The quantity of mortar= 1/12 Ã— 18000000 = 1500000

Volume of bricks= 18000000 â€“ 1500000 = 16500000 cm^{3}

Volume of single brick = 22 Ã— 12.5 Ã— 7.5 = 2062.5 cm^{3}

Therefore, total number of bricks required

=total volume of the bricks/ volume of the each brick

= 16500000/2062.5

= 8000 bricks

**11. Find the capacity of rectangular cistern in liters whose dimensions are 11.2 m Ã— 6m Ã— 5.8m. Find the area of the iron sheet required to make the cistern.**

**Solution:**

We know that volume of cuboid = length Ã— breadth Ã— height

Volume of the cistern = 11.2 Ã— 6 Ã— 5.8

= 389.76 m^{3}

= 389.76 Ã— 1000

= 389760 litres.

Area of the sheet that required to make the cistern = total surface area of the cistern + iron sheet

we know that total surface area of cuboid= 2(l b + b h + h l)

= 2 (11.22 Ã— 6 + 6 Ã— 5.8 + 5.8 Ã— 11.2)

= 2 (67.2 + 64.96 + 34.8)

= 333.92 cm^{2}

= 0.5/10000

=0.00005m

=0.005cm

**13. The rainfall recorded on a certain day was 5cm. Find the volume of water that fell on a 2-hectare field.**

**Solution**:

Given that rainfall recorded on a certain day= 5cm = 0.05m

Area of the field = 2 hectare

We know that 1 hectare = 10000 m^{2}

Area = 2 Ã— 10000

Area = 20000 m^{2}

Total rain in the field= area of the field Ã— height of the field

=0.05 Ã— 20000 = 1000 m^{3}

**14. A river 2m deep and 45m wide is flowing at the rate of 3km/h. Find the quantity of water that runs into the sea per minute.**

Let the depth of the pit is x m.

Therefore, V= 5 Ã— 3.5 Ã— x

But volume is 14 m^{3}

x = V/ 5 Ã— 3.5

x = 14/ 5 Ã— 3.5

x= 0.8 m=80cm
