#### Solution

Matchbox is a cuboid having its length (*l*), breadth (*b*), height (*h*) as 4 cm, 2.5 cm, and 1.5 cm.

Volume of 1 match box = *l *×* b* ×* h*

= (4 × 2.5 × 1.5) cm^{3} = 15 cm^{3}

Volume of 12 such matchboxes = (15 × 12) cm^{3}

= 180 cm^{3}

Therefore, the volume of 12 match boxes is 180 cm^{3}.
