A. 40cm B. 30cm C. 20cm D. 10cm Answer Workspace Report Discuss Answer with explanation Answer: Option A Explanation (or) Given: The volume of a wall is 12.8 m^{3}. Height is 5 times the breadth and length is 8 times the height. Let breadth = x ∴ Height = 5x ⇒ Length = 8 × (5x) = 40x The volume of a Cuboid is given by l × b × h (here l, b, h are, length, breadth, height respectively) ∴ l × b × h = 12.8 ⇒ x × 5x × 40x = 12.8 ⇒ 200x^{3} = 12.8 ⇒ x^{3} = 12.8/200 m^{3} = 8/125 ⇒ x= ∛ (8/125)m = 2/5 m = 0.4 m ∴ x = 0.4m = 0.4 × 100 = 40cm That is Breadth is: 40cm Workspace

How to solve

Saran Harika says

Given: The volume of a wall is 12.8 m3.

Height is 5 times the breadth and length is 8 times the height.

Let breadth = x

∴ Height = 5x

⇒ Length = 8 × (5x) = 40x

The volume of a Cuboid is given by l × b × h (here l, b, h are, length, breadth, height respectively)

∴ l × b × h = 12.8

⇒ x × 5x × 40x = 12.8

⇒ 200×3 = 12.8

⇒ x3 = 12.8/200 m3 = 8/125

⇒ x= ∛ (8/125)m = 2/5 m = 0.4 m

∴ x = 0.4m = 0.4 × 100 = 40cm
