#### Question

A godown measures 40m × 25 m × 10 m. Find the maximum number of wooden crates each measuring 1.5 m
× 1.25 m × 0.5 m that can be stored in the godown.

#### Solution

Given go down length(l_1)=40m.
Breath (b_1 ) = 25m.
Height (h_1 ) = 10m.
"Volume of wooden crate"=l_1xxb_1xxh_1=40xx25xx10m^3
=10000m_3
Wood of wooden crate= l_2xxb_2xxh_2
=1.5xx1.25xx0.25m^3=0.9375m^3

Let m wooden creates be stored in the go down volume of m wood crates = volume of go down

0.9375xxn=10000
n=(10000)/(0.9375)=10,666.66,

Thus, 10, 666  66 wooden crates can be stored in go down.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
