#### Question 11:

The dimensions of a cuboid with vertices *A, B, C, D, E, F, G* and *H* are as shown in Fig. 16.4.

(i) Which edges are of length 4 cm? Which edges are of length 5 cm?

(ii) Which faces have area equal to 20 cm^{2}?

(iii) Which faces have the largest area? What is this largest ares?

(iv) Which faces have a diagonal equal to 5 cm?

(v) What is the area of the base of this cuboid?

(vi) Do all the lateral faces have the same area?

#### Answer:

(i) The edges of 4 cm length are AD, EH, BC, and FG.

The edges of 5 cm length are AB, EF, CD and GH.

(ii) The faces having dimensions of 5 cm x 4 cm would have an area of 20 cm^{2}.^{ }And such faces are ABCD and EFGH.

(iii) ABCD and EFGH have the largest area of 20 cm^{2}.

(There are three pairs of opposite faces of equal area. The area of opposite faces are: 3 x 4 cm^{2}, 4 x 5 cm^{2}, and 3 x 5 cm^{2}.

And among these, 4 x 5 cm^{2}^{ }is the largest.

(iv) The faces having sides of 3 cm and 4 cm respectively would have the diagonal of 5 cm. (As hypotenuse of a right- angles triangle is: 3^{2} + 4^{2} = 5^{2}). Therefore, the faces ADHE and BCGF have the diagonal of 5 cm.

(v) The base has q dimension of 4 cm x 5 cm, so area of abase is: 4 x 5 = 20 cm^{2}.

(vi) No, all lateral faces do not have the same area. The two lateral faces have an area of 3 x 5 = 15 cm^{2} and rest of the two lateral faces have an area of 3 x 4 = 12 cm^{2}.
