 Question 233449: the dimension of a closed box is 30cm by 50cm by 10cm high.if the thikness of six panels is 1cm find its volumeAnswer by checkley77(12569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!BASE=50*30=1.500 CM^2 IF THE 10 CM HIGH SIDES ARE OUTSIDE THE 50 BY 30 BASE THEN THE HEIGHT IS 8 BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO SUBTRACT 2 CM TO ACCOUNT FOR THE THICKNESS OF THE BASE AND LID: 50 by 30 |---------------| |***********| |***********| 8 |***********| |---------------| 1,500*8=12,000 CM^3 IS THE VOLUME. IF THE 10 CM HIGH SIDES SIT ON THE BASE THEN THE BASE IS 48 BY 28 BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO SUBTRACT 2 CM. FROM THE BASE AND LID MEASUREMENTS TO ACCOUNT FOR THE THICKNESS OF THE SIDES: 50 by 30 _________ |********| |********| |********| 10 |********| _________ SORRY THAT THE SKETCHES AREN'T BETTER BUT THAT'S THE BEST I CAN DO WITH THE KEYBOARD SYMBOLS. (50-2)(30-2)*10=48*28*10=13,440 CM^3 IS THE VOLUME.
