Question 1.
Find the volume of a cuboid whose dimensions are
(i) length = 12 cm, breadth = 8 cm, height = 6 cm
(ii) length = 60 m, breadth = 25 m, height = 1.5 m
Solution:
(i) Here l = 12 cm, b = 8 cm, h = 6 cm
Volume of a cuboid = l × b × h
= (12 × 8 × 6) cm³
= 576 cm³

(ii) Here l = 60 m, b = 25 m. h = 1.5 m
Volume of a cuboid = l × b × h
= 60 × 25 × 1.5 m³
= 2250 m³ Question 2.
The dimensions of a match box are 6 cm × 3.5 cm × 2.5 cm. Find the volume of a packet containing 12 such match boxes.
Solution:
Length of a match box (l) = 6 cm
Breadth of a match box (b) = 3.5 cm
Height of a match box (h) = 2.5 cm
Volume of one match box = l × b × h cu. units
= 6 × 3.5 × 2.5 cm³
= 52.5 cm³
Volume of 12 match box = 12 × 52.5 cm³
= 630 cm³ Question 3.
The length, breadth and height of a chocolate box are in the ratio 5 : 4 : 3. If its volume is 7500 cm³, then find its dimensions.
Solution:
Let the length of a chocolate be 5x, the breadth of a chocolate be 4x, and the height of a chocolate be 3x.
Volume of a chocolate = 7500 cm³
l × b × h = 7500
5x × 4x × 3x = 7500
5 × 4 × 3 × x³ = 7500
x³ = $$\frac{7500}{5×4×3}$$
x³ = 125 ⇒ x³ = 5³
x = 5
∴ Length of a chocolate = 5 × 5 = 25 cm
Breath of a chocolate = 4 × 5 = 20 cm
Height of a chocolate = 3 × 5 = 15 cm Question 4.
The length, breadth and depth of a pond are 20.5 m, 16 m and 8 m respectively. Find the capacity of the pond in litres.
Solution:
Length of a pond (l) = 20.5 m
Breadth of a pond (b) = 16 m
Depth of a pond (h) = 8 m
Volume of the pond = l × b × h cu.units
= 20.5 × 16 × 8 m³
= 2624 m³ (1 cu. m = 1000 lit)
= (2624 × 1000) litres
= 2624000 lit Question 5.
The dimensions of a brick are 24 cm × 12 cm × 8 cm. How many such bricks will be required to build a wall of 20 m length, 48 cm breadth and 6 m height?
Solution:
Length of a brick (l) = 24 cm
Breadth of a brick (b) = 12 cm
Depth of a brick (h) = 8 cm
Volume of a brick = lbh cu.units
Volume of one brick = 24 × 12 × 8 cm³
Length of a wall (l) = 20 m = 2000 cm
Breadth of a wall (b) = 48 cm
Height of a wall (h) = 6 m = 600 cm
Volume of a wall = l × b × h cu. units
= 2000 × 48 × 600 cm³
Number of bricks = 500 × 50 ( ÷ by 4)
= 25000 bricks
∴ Number of bricks = 25000 Question 6.
The volume of a container is 1440 m³. The length and breadth of the container are 15 m and 8 m respectively. Find its height.
Solution:
Let the height of the container be “h”
Length of the container (l) = 15 m
Breadth of the container (b) = 8 m
Volume of the container = 1440 m³
l × b × h = 1440
15 × 8 × h = 1440
h = $$\frac{1440}{15×8}$$
= 12 m
∴ Height of the container = 12 m Question 7.
Find the volume of a cube each of whose side is
(i) 5 cm
(ii) 3.5 m
(iii) 21 cm
Solution:
(i) Side of a cube (a) = 5 cm
Volume of a cube = a³ cu. units
= 5 × 5 × 5 cm³
= 125 cm³

(ii) Side of a cube (a) = 3.5 m a³ cu. units
Volume of a cube = 3.5 × 3.5 × 3.5 m³
= 42.875 m³

(iii) Side of a cube (a) = 21 cm
Volume of a cube = a³ cu. units
= 21 × 21 × 21 cm³
= 9261 cm³ Question 8.
A cubical milk tank can hold 125000 litres of milk. Find the length of its side in metres.
Solution:
Volume of the cubical tank = 125000 liters
= $$\frac{125}{1000}$$ m³ (1 cu.m = 1000 lit)
= 125 m³
a³ = 125 ⇒ a³ = 5³
a = 5
Side of a cube = 5 m Question 9.
A metallic cube with side 15 cm is melted and formed into a cuboid. If the length and height of the cuboid is 25 cm and 9 cm respectively then find the breadth of the cuboid.
Solution:
Side of a cube (a) = 15 cm
Length of a cuboid (l) = 25 cm
Height of a cuboid (h) = 9 cm
Volume of the cuboid = Volume of the cube
l × b × h = a³
25 × b × 9 = 15 × 15 × 15
b = $$\frac{15 × 15 × 15}{25 × 9}$$
= 15 cm
Breadth of the cuboid = 15 cm
