Each edge of a cube is increased by 50%. Find the percentage increase in the surface area of the cube.
`"Let d be the edge of the cube"`
`∴surface area of cube= 6xxa^2`
According to problem when edge increased by 50% then the new edge becomes
`"New surface area becomes" =6xx(3/2a)^2`
∴Increased surface Area = `27/2a^2-6a^2`
So, increase in surface area `(15/2a^2)/6a^2`
