1. 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 1m

^{2}costs Rs 20.

**Answer**

Length of plastic box (l) = 1.5 m

Width of plastic box (b) = 1.25 m

Depth of plastic box (h) = 0.65 m

(i) The area of sheet required to make the box is equal to the surface area of the box excluding the top.

Surface area of the box = Lateral surface area + Area of the base

= 2(l+b)×h + (l×b)

= 2[(1.5 + 1.25)×0.65] + (1.5 × 1.25) m

^{2 }

^{ }= (3.575 + 1.875) m

^{2 }

= 5.45

^{ }m

^{2 }

^{ }

The sheet required required to make the box is 5.45 m

^{2 }

(ii) Cost of 1 m

^{2 }of sheet

^{ }= Rs 20

∴ Cost of 5.45

^{ }m

^{2 }of sheet = Rs (20 × 5.45) = Rs 109

2. The length, breadth and height of a room are 5m, 4m and 3m respectively. Find the cost of white washing the walls of the room and the ceiling at the rate of ₹7.50 per m

^{2}.

**Answer**

length of the room = 5m

breadth of the room = 4m

height of the room = 3m

Area of four walls including the ceiling = 2(l+b)×h + (l×b)

= 2(5+4)×3 + (5×4) m

^{2 }

^{ }= (54 + 20) m

^{2 }

= 74

^{ }m

^{2 }Cost of white washing = ₹7.50 per m

^{2}

Total cost = ₹

^{ }(74×7.50) = ₹ 555

3. The floor of a rectangular hall has a perimeter 250 m. If the cost of painting the four walls at the rate of ₹10 per m

^{2}is ₹15000, find the height of the hall.

[Hint : Area of the four walls = Lateral surface area.]

**Answer**

Perimeter of rectangular hall = 2(l + b) = 250 m

Total cost of painting = ₹15000

Rate per m

^{2 }=

^{ }₹10

Area of four walls = 2(l + b) h m

^{2 }= (250×h) m

^{2}

A/q,

(250×h)×10 = ₹15000

⇒ 2500×h = ₹15000

⇒ h = 15000/2500 m

⇒ h = 6 m

Thus the height of the hall is 6 m.

4. The paint in a certain container is sufficient to paint an area equal to 9.375 m

^{2}. How many bricks of dimensions 22.5 cm×10 cm×7.5 cm can be painted out of this container?

**Answer**

Volume of paint = 9.375 m

^{2 }=

^{ }93750 cm

^{2}

Dimension of brick = 22.5 cm×10 cm×7.5 cm

Total surface area of a brick = 2(lb + bh + lh) cm

^{2}

= 2(22.5×10 + 10×7.5 + 22.5×7.5) cm

^{2}

= 2(225 + 75 + 168.75) cm

^{2}

= 2×468.75 cm

^{2}= 937.5

^{ }cm

^{2}

Number of bricks can be painted = 93750/937.5 = 100

5. 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?

**Answer**

(i) Lateral surface area of cubical box of edge 10cm = 4×10

^{2}cm

^{2}= 400 cm

^{2}

Lateral surface area of cuboid box = 2(l+b)×h

= 2×(12.5+10)×8 cm

^{2}

= 2×22.5×8 cm

^{2}= 360 cm

^{2}

Thus, lateral surface area of the cubical box is greater by (400 – 360) cm

^{2}= 40 cm

^{2}

(ii) Total surface area of cubical box of edge 10 cm =6×102cm2=600cm2

Total surface area of cuboidal box = 2(lb + bh + lh)

= 2(12.5×10 + 10×8 + 8×12.5) cm

^{2}

= 2(125+80+100) cm

^{2}

= (2×305) cm

^{2 }= 610 cm

^{2}

Thus, total surface area of cubical box is smaller by 10 cm

^{2}

^{}

6. 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?

**Answer**

(i) Dimensions of greenhouse:

l = 30 cm, b = 25 cm, h = 25 cm

Total surface area of green house = 2(lb + bh + lh)

= 2(30×25 + 25×25 + 25×30) cm

^{2}

= 2(750 + 625 + 750) cm

^{2}

= 4250 cm

^{2}

(ii) Length of the tape needed = 4(l + b + h)

= 4(30 + 25 + 25) cm

= 4×80 cm = 320 cm

7. Shanti Sweets Stall was placing an order for making cardboard boxes for packing their sweets. Two sizes of boxes were required. The bigger of dimensions 25 cm × 20 cm × 5 cm and the smaller of dimensions 15 cm × 12 cm × 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 cm

^{2}, find the cost of cardboard required for supplying 250 boxes of each kind.

**Answer**

Dimension of bigger box = 25 cm × 20 cm × 5 cm

Total surface area of bigger box = 2(lb + bh + lh)

= 2(25×20 + 20×5 + 25×5) cm

^{2}

= 2(500 + 100 + 125) cm

^{2}

= 1450 cm

^{2}

Dimension of smaller box = 15 cm × 12 cm × 5 cm

Total surface area of smaller box = 2(lb + bh + lh)

= 2(15×12 + 12×5 + 15×5) cm

^{2}

= 2(180 + 60 + 75) cm

^{2}

= 630 cm

^{2}

Total surface area of 250 boxes of each type = 250(1450 + 630) cm

^{2}

= 250×2080 cm

^{2 }= 520000

^{ }cm

^{2}

Extra area required = 5/100(1450 + 630) × 250 cm

^{2 }= 26000

^{ }cm

^{2}

Total Cardboard required = 520000 + 26000 cm

^{2}= 546000

^{ }cm

^{2}

Total cost of cardboard sheet = ₹ (546000 × 4)/1000 = ₹ 2184

8. Parveen wanted to make a temporary shelter for her car, by making a box-like structure with tarpaulin that covers all the four sides and the top of the car (with the front face as a flap which can be rolled up). Assuming that the stitching margins are very small, and therefore negligible, how much tarpaulin would be required to make the shelter of height 2.5 m, with base dimensions 4m × 3m?

**Answer**

Dimensions of the box- like structure = 4m × 3m × 2.5

Tarpaulin only required for all the four sides and top.

Thus, Tarpaulin required = 2(l+b)×h + lb

= [2(4+3)×2.5 + 4×3] m

^{2}

= (35+12) m

^{2}

= 47 m

**Exercise 13.2**

1. The curved surface area of a right circular cylinder of height 14 cm is 88 cm

^{2}. Find the diameter of the base of the cylinder.

**Answer**

Let r be the radius of the base and h = 14 cm be the height of the cylinder.

Curved surface area of cylinder = 2πrh = 88 cm

^{2}

⇒ 2 × 22/7 × r × 14 = 88

⇒ r = 88/ (2 × 22/7 × 14)

^{2}

= 2 × 22/7 × 2 × 77cm

^{2}

= 968 cm

^{2}

(ii) Outer curved surface = 2πRh cm

= 2 × 22/7 × 2.2 × 77 cm^{2}^{2}

= 1064.8 cm

^{2}

(iii) Total surface area of a pipe = Inner curved surface area + outer curved surface area + areas of two bases

= 2πrh + 2πRh + 2π(R^{2 -}r

^{2})

= [968 + 1064.8 + (2 × 22/7) (4.84 - 4)] cm

^{2}

= (2032.8 + 44/7 × 0.84) cm

^{2}

Height of the tank (h) = 4.5 m

Curved surface area = 2πrh m

^{2}

= (2 × 22/7 × 2.1 × 4.5) m

^{2}

= 59.4 m

^{2}

(ii) Total surface area of the tank = 2πr(r + h) m

^{2}

= [2 × 22/7 × 2.1 (2.1 + 4.5)] m

^{2}

= 87.12 m

^{2}

Let x be the actual steel used in making tank.

∴ (1 - 1/12) × x = 87.12

Height of the conical tent (h) = 10 m

Let l be the slant height of the cone.

∴ l

^{2 }= h

^{2 }+ r

^{2}

⇒ l = √h

^{2 }+ r

^{2}

⇒ l = √10

^{2 }+ 24

^{2}

⇒ l = √100

^{ }+ 576

^{}

⇒ l = 26 m

(ii) Canvas required to make the conical tent = Curved surface of the cone

Cost of 1 m

^{2}canvas = ₹70

∴ πrl = (22/7 × 24 × 26) m

⇒ l = √8

^{2 }+ 6

^{2}

⇒ l = √100

⇒ l = 10 m

CSA of conical tent = πrl

= (3.14 × 6 × 10) m

^{2}= 188.4 m

^{2}

Breadth of tarpaulin = 3 m

Let length of tarpaulin sheet required be x.

20 cm will be wasted in cutting.

So, the length will be (x - 0.2 m)

Breadth of tarpaulin = 3 m

Area of sheet = CSA of tent

[(x - 0.2 m) × 3] m = 188.4 m

^{2}

⇒ x - 0.2 m = 62.8 m

⇒ x = 63 m

^{2}, what will be the cost of painting all these cones? (Use π = 3.14 and take √1.04 = 1.02)

**Answer**

Radius of the cone (r) = 40/2 cm = 20 cm = 0.2 m

Height of the cone (h) = 1 m

Let l be the slant height of a cone.

∴ l = √h

^{2 }+ r

^{2}

⇒ l = √1

^{2 }+ 0.2

^{2}

⇒ l = √1.04
