Question no – (10)

Solution :

Let, the length of the cubical box = x cm

Then the volume of the cubical box = x3 cm3

x3 = 1953.125

=> x = ∛5 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 5/ 10× 10 × 10

= 5 × 5 × 5/10

= 125/10

= 12.5

Length of the cubical = 12.5

Question no – (11)

Solution :

Let, the length of the cubical box = x m

∴ Volume of the cubical box = x3 m3

∴ x3 = 0.001331

=> x = ∛0.001331

= ∛1331/1000000

= ∛11 × 11 × 11/10 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 1 0

= 11/10 × 10

= 11/100

= 0.11

The length of the cubical box = 0.11 m

Total surface area of the box is

= 6 × (0.11)m

= 6 × 0.11/100 × 0.11/100

= 66 × 11/10000

= 726/10000

= 0.0726 m
