Q

# A godown measures 40 m × 25 m × 15 m. Find the maximum number of wooden crates each measuring 1.5 m × 1.25 m × 0.5 m that can be stored in the godown.

Q : 7    A godown measures $\small 40\hspace{1mm}m\times 25\hspace{1mm}m\times 15\hspace{1mm}m$. Find the maximum number of wooden crates each measuring $1.5\hspace{1mm}m\times 1.25\hspace{1mm}m\times 0.5\hspace{1mm}m$ that can be stored in the godown.

Given,

Dimensions of the godown = $\small 40\hspace{1mm}m\times 25\hspace{1mm}m\times 15\hspace{1mm}m$

Dimension of each wooden crate = $\small 1.5\hspace{1mm}m\times 1.25\hspace{1mm}m\times 0.5\hspace{1mm}m$

We know , Volume of a cuboid = $l\times b\times h$

$\therefore$ Volume of the godown = $(40\times 25\times 15)\ m^3$

$\therefore$ Volume of the each crate= $(1.5\times 1.25\times 0.5)\ m^3$

Let number of wooden crates be $n$

$\therefore$ Volume of $n$ wooden crates = Volume of the godown

$n\times(1.5\times 2.5\times 0.5)\ m^3 = (40\times 25\times 15)\ m^3$

$\\ \Rightarrow n = \frac{40\times 25\times 15}{1.5\times 1.25\times 0.5} \\ \\ \Rightarrow n = 80\times 20\times 10 = 16000$
