## anonymous 4 years ago Polar Company has designed an ice block in the shape of a cube. The volume of the cube is 15 625 cm3. Which of the following dimensions is the smallest opening of an ice dispenser that will accommodate length AB?

1. anonymous

25cm

2. anonymous

$\sqrt[3]{15625}=25$

|dw:1327465662142:dw|

bottom corner to the top corner at the opposite end is AB

5. anonymous

Therefore opening needs to be 25x25 (assuming it will always fall base first. If not look at the image above)

6. anonymous

in which case $25\sqrt{2}\times25\sqrt{2}$
