The capacity of a cuboidal tank is 50000 litres of water. Find the breadth of the tank, if its length and depth are respectively 2.5 m and 10 m.
Let the breadth of the tank be b m.
Length (l) and depth (h) of tank is 2.5 m and 10 m respectively.
Volume of tank = l × b × h
= (2.5 × b × 10) m3
= 25b m3
Capacity of tank = 25b m3 = 25000 b litres
∴ 25000 b = 50000
⇒ b = 2
Therefore, the breadth of the tank is 2 m.
