A plastic box 1.5 m long, 1.25 m wide and 65 cm deep is to be made. It is opened at the top. Ignoring the thickness of the plastic sheet, determine
(i) The area of the sheet required for making the box.
(ii) The cost of sheet for it, if a sheet measuring 1m2 costs ₹20.
We have a plastic box of
l = length = 15 m
b = width = 1.25 m
h = depth = 65 cm
= 65100 m= 0.65 m (∵ 1 m = 100cm)
Surface area of the box = 2 (lb + bh + hl)
= 2(1.5 x 1.25 + 1.25 x 0.65 + 0.65 x 1.5)
= 2(1.875 + 0.8125 + 0.975) = 2 (3.6625)
= 7.325 m2
(i) Area of the sheet required for making the box
= 7.325 – l x b (∵ BOX is opened at the top)
= 7.325 – 1.5 x 1.25
= 7.325 – 1.875 = 5.45 m2
(ii) A sheet measuring 1 m2 costs = ₹20
∴ Sheet measuring 5.45 m2 costs = ₹20 x 5.45 = ₹109
The length, breadth and height of a room are 5 m, 4 m and 3 m, respectively. Find the cost of white washing the walls of the room and the ceiling at the rate of ₹17.50 per m2.
We have a room of l = 5m
b = 4m
h = 3m
Required area for white washing
= Area of the four walls + Area of ceiling
= 2(l+ b) x h+ (l x b)
= 2(5+4) x 3 +(5 x 4)
= 2x 9x 3 + 20
= 74 m2
White washing 1 m2 costs = ₹7.50
White washing 74 m2 costs = ₹7.50x 74 = ₹555

Given, dimensions of a brick
l = 22.5 cm, b = 10 cm
and b = 7.5cm
Total surface area of bricks = 2 ( l x b + b x h + h x l)
= 2(22.5 x 10 + 10 x 75 + 75 x 225)
= 2(225 + 75 + 168.75)
= 2 x 468.75 cm2
= 9375 cm2

A cubical box has each edge 10 cm and another cuboidal box is 12.5 cm long, 10 cm wide and 8 cm high.
(i) Which box has the greater lateral surface area and by how much?
(ii) Which box has the smaller total surface area and by how much?
We have l1 for cubical box = 10 cm
For cuboidal box l= 12.5 cm
b = 10 cm
h = 8 cm
(i) Lateral surface area of cubical box = 4l2 = 4(10)2
= 4 x 100
= 400 cm2
Lateral surface area of cuboidal box = 4 (l + b) x h
= 2 (125 + 10) x 8
= 2 (225) x 8
= 45 x 8 = 360 cm2
(∵ Lateral surface area of cuboidal box) > (Lateral surface area of cuboidal box) (∵ 400 >360)
∴ Required area = (400 – 360) cm2 = 40 cm2
(ii) Total surface area of cubical box = 6l2 = 6(10)2 = 6x 100= 600 cm2
Total surface area of cuboidal box = 2 ( l x b + b x h + h x l)
= 2(125 x 10 + 10 x 8 + 8 x 125)
= 2(125 + 80+ 100)
= 2 x 305
= 610 cm2
∴ (Area of cuboidal box) > (Area of cubical box) (∵ 610 > 600)
Required area = (610 – 600)cm2 = 10 cm2
A small indoor greenhouse (herbarium) is made entirely of glass panes (including base) held together with tape. It is 30 cm long, 25 cm wide and 25 cm high.
(i) What is the area of the glass?
(ii) How much of tape is needed for all the 12 edges?
Dimension for herbarium are
l = 30 cm, b = 25 cm and h = 25 cm
Area of the glass = 2 (l x b + b x h + h x l)
= 2 ( 30 x 25 + 25 x 25 + 25 x 30)
= 2(750 + 625 + 750) = 2 (2125) = 4250cm2
∴ Length of the tape = 4 (l + b + h) = 4(30 + 25 + 25)
[∵ Herbarium is a shape of cuboid length = 4 (1+ b + h)] = 4×80= 320cm
Shanti Sweets Stalll was placing an order for making cardboard boxes for packing their sweets. Two sizes of boxes were required. The bigger of dimensions 25 cm x 20 cm x 5 cm and the smaller of dimensions 15 cm x 12 cm x 5 cm. For all the overlaps, 5% of the total surface area is required extra. If the cost of the cardboard is ₹4 for 1000 cm2, find the cost of cardboard required for supplying 250 boxes of each kind.
Dimension for bigger box, l = 25 cm, b = 20 cm and b = 5 cm
Total surface area of the bigger size box
=2 ( l x b + b x h + h x l)
= 2(25 x 20 + 20 x 5 + 5 x 25)
= 2(500+ 100+ 125)
= 2(725)= 1450 cm2
Dimension for smaller box, l = 15 cm b = 12 cm and h = 5 cm
Total surface area of the smaller size box = 2(15 x 12 + 12 x 5 + 5 x 15)
= 2 (180 + 60 + 75)= 2 (315)= 630 cm2
Area for all the overlaps = 5% x 2080 cm2 = 5100 – x 2080 cm2 = 104 cm2
Total surface area of both boxes and area of overlaps = (2080 + 104) cm2 = 2184 cm2
Total surface area for 250 boxes = 2184 x 250 cm2
Cost of the cardboard for 1000 cm2 = ₹4
Costs of the cardboard for 1 cm = ₹ 41000
Cost of the cardboard for 2184 x 250 cm2 = ₹ 4x2184x2501000 = ₹ 2184

Capacity of a closed cylindrical vessel = 15.4 L
= 15.4 x 1000cm3 (∵ 1L = 1000 cm2)
∴ πr2h = 15400 cm3
πr2 x 100 = 15400
r2 = 154 x 722 (∵ h= 1m= 100cm)
⇒ r2 = 7 x 7
⇒ r = 7 cm
Total surface area of closed cylindrical vessel = 2πr(r + h)

A wooden bookshelf has external dimensions as follows : Height = 110cm, Depth = 25cm, Breadth = 85cm (see figure). The thickness of the plank is 5 cm everywhere. The external faces are to be polished and the inner faces are to be painted. If the rate of polishing-is 20 paise per cm2 and the rate of pointing is 10 paise per cm2, find the total expenses required for palishing and painting the surface of the bookshelf.
Here, l = 85 cm b = 25 cm and h = 110 cm
Area of the bookshelf of outer surface = 2 lb + 2bh + hl
= [2(85 x 25)+ 2(110 x 25)+ 85×110] cm2 = (4250 + 5500 + 9350) cm2 = 19100 cm2
Cost of polishing of the outer surface of bookshelf
= 19100 x 20100 = ₹ 3820
Thickness of the plank = 5 cm
Internal height of bookshelf = (110 – 2 x 5) = 100 cm
Internal depth of bookshelf = (25 – 5) = 20 cm
Internal breadth of bookshelf = 85 – 2 x 5 = 75 cm
Hence, area of the internal surface of bookshelf
= 2(75 x 20)+ 2(100x 20)+ 75×100
= 3000 + 4000 + 7500 = 14500 cm2
So, cost of painting of internal surface of bookshelf
= 14500 x 10100 = ₹1450
Hence, total costing of polishing and painting = 3820 + 1450= ₹ 5270
The front compound wall of a house is decorated by wooden spheres of diameter 21 cm, placed on small supports as shown in figure.
