Question of The Day09-11-2020

If from a rectangular sheet of paper having dimensions 18 cm × 11 cm, a cuboid is formed without wasting any paper. If ratio of the length, breadth and height of the cuboid is 1 : 2 : 3 respectively, then what will be the volume (in cm3) of the cuboid?

Answer

Correct Answer : d ) 162

Explanation :

Ratio of the length (l), breadth (b) and height (h) of the cuboid is 1 : 2 : 3 respectively

Let us assume length, breadth and height of cuboid be x, 2x and 3x respectively

As, no paper is wasted in making the cuboid

So, Area of rectangular sheet = Total surface area of cuboid

18 * 11 = 2 (lb + bh + hl)

⇒ 18 * 11 = 2 (x * 2x + 2x * 3x + 3x * x)

⇒ 2 (2x2 + 6x2 + 3x2) = 11 * 18

⇒22x2=18*11

⇒ x = 3

Now,

Volume of cuboid = l * b * h

⇒ Volume = x * 2x * 3x = 6x3 = 6 * (3)3 = 162 cm3

Hence, (d) is the correct answer.
