ConceptVolume of a Cuboid

#### Question

A cuboidal vessel is 10 m long and 8 m wide. How high must it be made to hold 380 cubic metres of a liquid?

#### Solution

Let the height of the cuboidal vessel be h.

Length (l) of vessel = 10 m

Width (b) of vessel = 8 m

Volume of vessel = 380 m3

∴ l × b × h = 380

[(10) (8) h] m2= 380 m3

h = 4.75m

Therefore, the height of the vessel should be 4.75 m.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
