Plastic Box

Plastic box length1.5m,width=1.25m and depth=65cm

  • Plastic box length is Equation

  • Plastic box width is Equation

  • Plastic box depths is Equation

Solution (i) The area of sheet required to make the box is equal to the surface area of the box excluding the top.

  • Equation

  • Equation

  • Equation

  • Equation

  • Equation

The sheet required required to make the box is Equation

Solution (ii) Cost of Equation of sheet Equation

∴ Cost of Equation of sheet Equation

Q-2 The length, breadth and height of a room are Equation respectively. Find the cost of white washing the walls of the room and the ceiling at the rate of Equation


  • The room length is Equation

  • The room breadth is Equation

  • The room height is Equation

Area of four walls including the ceiling = Area of walls ( Equation + area of ceiling ( Equation )

  • Equation

  • Equation

  • Equation

  • Equation

Cost of white washing Equation

Q-3 The floor of a rectangular hall has a perimeter Equation . If the cost of painting the four walls at the rate of Equation is Equation , find the height of the hall.


  • Perimeter of rectangular hall Equation

  • Total cost of painting Equation

  • Rate per Equation

Area of four walls = Equation

  • Now Equation is the perimeter of the floor which is 250 m. Therefore, area of four walls is Equation

  • Total cost of painting= Area of four walls hall × rate per square m Equation

  • Therefore, Equation or Equation

So, the height of the hall is Equation
