Q : 1    A matchbox measures $\small 4\hspace{1mm}cm\times 2.5\hspace{1mm}cm\times 1.5\hspace{1mm}cm$. What will be the volume of a packet containing 12 such boxes?

N Nehul

Given,

Dimensions of a matchbox =  $\small 4\hspace{1mm}cm\times 2.5\hspace{1mm}cm\times 1.5\hspace{1mm}cm$

We know,

The volume of a cuboid = $l\times b \times h$

$\small \therefore$ The volume of a matchbox= $\small (4 \times2.5\times 1.5)\ cm^3 = 15\ cm^3$

$\small \therefore$ Volume of 12 such matchboxes = $\small (15\times12)\ cm^3 = 180\ cm^3$

Therefore, the volume of a packet containing 12 matchboxes is $\small 180\ cm^3$
