Question 4
The plastic paint in a Asian paint container is sufficient to paint an area equal to 93.75m2 How many blocks of dimensions 22.5 cm × 10 cm × 7.5 cm can be painted out of this container
(a) 100
(b) 800
(c) 940
(d) 1000
Answer is (d)
Total surface area of one block = 2(lb + bh + lh)
= [2(22.5 ×10 + 10 × 7.5 + 22.5 × 7.5)] cm
= 2(225 + 75 + 168.75) cm2
= (2 × 468.75) cm2
= 937.5 cm2
Let n blocks can be painted out by the paint of the container.
Area of n bricks = (n ×937.5) cm2 = 937.5n cm2
Area that can be painted by the paint of the container = 93.75 m2= 937500 cm2
937500 = 937.5n
n = 1000
Therefore, 1000 blocks can be painted out by the paint of the container
