Three cubes of each side 4 cm are joined end to end. Find the surface area of the resulting cuboid.
Side of each cube (a) = 4 cm
We need to find the surface area of the resulting cuboid
Dimensions of the resulting cuboid,
Length (l) = 3a
Breadth (b) = a
Height (h) = a
Surface area of the cuboid,
`=2(lb + bh + hl)`
`=2[(3a) a +(a)(a) +a(3a)]`
`= 14 xx 4^2`
Surface area of the cuboid is `224 cm^2`.
