Q : 6    A small indoor greenhouse (herbarium) is made entirely of glass panes (including
base) held together with tape. It is $\small 30 \hspace{1mm}cm$ long, $\small 25 \hspace{1mm}cm$ wide and $\small 25 \hspace{1mm}cm$ high.

(i) What is the area of the glass?

Given, dimensions of the greenhouse = $30\ cm \times25\ cm \times25\ cm$

Area of the glass = $2[lb + lh + bh]$
$\\ = [2(30 \times 25 + 30 \times 25 + 25 \times 25)] \\ = [2(750 + 750 + 625)] \\ = (2 \times 2125) \\ = 4250\ cm^2$
Therefore, the area of glass is $4250\ cm^2$
