The areas of three faces of a cuboid box of chocolates are 120cm², 80cm² and 96cm². What is the volume of the box?
Let the area of the three faces of a given cuboid be A, B and C.
Let the cuboid's volume be V and the sides of the cuboid be p, q and r.
Then pq = A; pr = B; qr = C and pqr = V
V = pqr
In the given problem:
A = 120; B = 80 and C = 96; and so:
The required volume (V)
= 960 cubic centimetres.
