## Simonbane 3 years ago 10 boxes each measuring 3ft by 2ft by 2t were arranged side by side. what is the amount of space covered?

1. Australopithecus

Area of Box = 2(lh + lw + wh) Add the sum of the areas

2. Australopithecus

where l = length h = height w = width |dw:1348392233544:dw|

3. Simonbane

i got 32

4. Simonbane

x 10 = 320

5. Simonbane

@Australopithecus what's next?

6. AravindG

i think space covered means the volume covered by the 10 boxes

7. Simonbane

yes.

8. AravindG

now volume of 1 box is given by multiplying base area with height

9. Simonbane

the volume is 12.

10. Simonbane

x10 = 120.

11. AravindG

ya then volume multiplied by 10 gives total volume !!

12. AravindG

yep :) over

13. Simonbane

and then?

14. AravindG

total volume = space covered!

15. Simonbane

that's it?

16. AravindG

yep!!

23. AravindG
