9.49 Surface Area of Cuboid - II

  1. Example:
    The length, breadth and height of a cuboid are 16 metres, 14 metres and 10 metres respectively. Find the total surface area of the cuboid.

    Solution:
    Given that,
    l = 16 metres, b = 14 metres and h = 10 metres.
    Equation for total surface area = 2 (l*b + b*h + h*l)
    = 2 (16*14 + 14*10 + 16*10)
    = 2 (224 + 140 + 160)
    = 2 (524)
    = 1048 square metres.

  2. Example:
    The width and height of a cuboid are 13 metres and 12 metres respectively. Find the length if the lateral surface area of the cuboid is given by 1600 square metres.

    Solution:
    Let 'x' be the length.
    Given that,
    b = 13 metres and h = 12 metres
    Equation for total surface area = 2 (l*b + b*h + h*l)
    Substituting the values of b and h we get,
    1600 = 2 (x*13 + 13*12 + 12*x)
    i.e 1600 = 2 (13x + 156 + 12x)
    i.e 1600 = 2 (25x + 156) = 50x + 312
    i.e 50x = 1600-312 = 1288.
    Therefore x = 1288/50 = 25.76.
    Hence length of the cuboid is 25.76 metres.



Directions: Read the above example carefully and answer the following questions:

  1. The length of a cuboid is 2 more than the width and 3 less than the height. If the ltotal surface area is given by 1126 square metres, then find its length, width and height.
  2. The length, width and height of a cuboid is given by 3x, 2x and 5x. Then find the total surface area. Also find the area when x = 2 metres.
