# 6.  How many silver coins, 1.75 cm in diameter and of thickness 2 mm, must be melted to form a cuboid of dimensions 5.5 cm × 10 cm × 3.5 cm?

Let us assume the number of coins that need to be melted be n.

Then we can write :

The volume of n coins   =   Volume of cuboid formed.

$n\left ( \pi r^2 h \right )\ =\ lbh'$

$n\left ( \pi \times \left ( \frac{1.75}{2} \right )^2\times 0.2 \right )\ =\ 5.5\times 10\times 3.5$

$n\ =\ 400$

Thus the required number of coins is 400.
