**Q.1:** **Find the volume, lateral surface area and the total surface area of the cuboid whose dimensions are:**

**(i) length = 12 cm, breadth = 8 cm and height = 4.5 cm.**

∴ Volume of cuboid = l × b × h

= (12 ×8 ×4.5) cm^{3}

∴ Lateral surface area of a cuboid = 2(l + b) × h

= [2(12 + 8) × 4.5] cm^{2}

= ( 2 × 20 × 4.5) cm^{2} = 180 cm^{2}

∴ Total surface area of cuboid = 2(lb + bh + lh)

= 2(12 × 8) = (8 × 4.5) + (4.5 × 12) cm^{2}

= 2(96 + 36 + 54) cm^{2} = 2(186) cm^{2} = 372 cm^{2}

**(ii) Length = 26 m, breadth = 14 m and height = 6.5 m**

∴ Volume of cuboid = l × b × h = (26 × 14 × 6.5) m^{3} = 2366 m^{3}

∴ Lateral surface area of a cuboid = 2(l + b) × h

= [2(26 + 14) × 6.5] m^{2} =(2 × 40 × 6.5) m^{2} = 520 m^{2}

∴Total surface area = 2(lb + bh + hl)

= 2((26 × 14) + (14 × 6.5) + (6.5 × 26)) m^{2} = 2(364 + 91 + 169) m^{2} = (2 × 624) m^{2} = 1248 m^{2}

**(iii) Length =**** 15 m, breadth = 6 m and height = 5 dm = 0.5 m.**

∴ Volume of the cuboid = l × b × h = (15 × 6 × 0.5) m^{3}

∴ Lateral surface area of a cuboid = 2(l + b) × h

= [2(15 + 6) × 0.5] m^{2} = (2 × 21 × 0.5) m^{2} = 21 m^{2}

∴Total surface area = 2(lb + bh + hl)

= 2((15 × 6) + (6 × 0.5) + (0.5 × 15)) m^{2} = 2(90 + 3 + 7.5) m^{2} = (2 × 100.5) m^{2} = 201 m^{2}

**(iv) Length = 24 m, breadth = 0.25 m and height = 6 m.**

∴ Volume of the cuboid = l × b × h = (24 × 0.25 × 6) m^{3}

∴ Lateral surface area of a cuboid = 2(l + b) × h

= [2(24 + 0.25) × 6] m^{2} = (2 × 24.25 × 6) m^{2} =291 m^{2}

∴Total surface area = 2(lb + bh + hl)

= 2((24 × 0.25) + (0.25 × 6) + (24 × 6)) m^{2} = 2(6 + 1.5 + 144) m^{2} = (2 × 151.5) m^{2} = 303 m^{2}

**Q.2:** **Find the capacity of a closed rectangular cistern whose length is 8 m, breadth 6 m and depth 2.5 m. Also, find the area of the iron sheet requires making the cistern.**

**Solution:**

Length of Cistern = 8 m

Breadth of Cistern = 6 m

Height of Cistern = 2.5 m

Therefore, the capacity of the cistern = Volume of the cistern

Volume of cistern = l × b × h = (8 × 6 × 2.5) m^{3} =120 m^{3}

Area of the iron sheet required = Total surface area of the cistern.

∴Total surface area = 2(lb + bh + hl)

= 2((8 × 6) + (6 × 2.5) + (2.5 × 8)) m^{2}

= 2(48 + 15 + 20) m^{2} = (2 × 83) m^{2} = 166 m^{2}

**Q.3:** **The dimensions of a room are (9 m × 8 m × 6.5 m). It has one door of dimensions (2 m × 1.5 m) and two windows, each of dimensions (1.5 m × 1 m). Find the cost of whitewashing the walls at Rs. 6.40 per square meter.**

**Solution:**

Length of a room = 9 m

Breadth of a room = 8 m

Height of a room = 6.5 m

Therefore, area of 4 walls =Lateral surface area

Lateral surface area of the room = 2(l + b) × h

= [2(9 + 8) × 6.5] m^{2} = (2 × 17 × 6.5) m^{2} = 221 m^{2}

∴ Area not white washed = (area of one door) + (area of 2 windows)

= (2 × 1.5) m^{2} + (2 × 1.5 × 1) m^{2} = 3 + 3 = 6 m^{2}

∴ Area whitewashed = (221 – 6) m^{2 }= 215 m^{2}

∴ Cost of whitewashing the walls at the rate of Rs.6.40 per square meter = Rs. (6.40 × 215) = Rs. 1376

**Solution:**

External Length of Cistern = 1.35 m = 135 cm

External Breadth of Cistern = 1.08 m = 108 cm

External Height of Cistern = 90 cm

External Volume of cistern = l × b × h = (135 × 108 × 90) cm^{3} =1312200 cm^{3}

Internal Length of Cistern = (135 – 2 * 2.5) cm = 130 cm

Internal Breadth of Cistern = (108 – 2 * 2.5) cm = 103 cm

Internal Height of Cistern = (90 – 2.5) cm = 87.5 cm

Therefore, the Internal capacity of the cistern = Volume of the Internal cistern

Volume of cistern = l × b × h

= (130 × 103 × 87.5) cm^{3} =1171625 cm^{3}

Volume of iron used = External Volume of the cistern. – Internal Volume of the citern.

= (1312200 – 1171625) cm^{3} = 140575 cm^{3}

Cost of metal sheet per square meter = Rs. 30

∴ Area of the sheet required =

Length of box = 5 m

Breadth of box = 3 m

Now, let the height of the box be x meters.

∴ Area of the sheet = Total surface area of the box = 2(lb + bh + hl)

54 = 2((5 × 3) + (3 × x) + (x × 5)) m^{2} = 2(15 + 3x + 5x)

54 = (2 × (15 + 18x))

Solving for x, we get, x = 1.5 m
