Or, AC^{2} = 3^{2} + 4^{2}

Or, AC^{2} = 9 + 16 = 25

Or, AC = 5 cm

In triangle ABC and triangle BDC;

So, we get following equations:

In triangle BDC;

DC^{2} = BC^{2} – BD^{2}

Or, DC^{2} = 4^{2} – 2.4^{2}

Or, DC^{2} = 16 – 5.76 = 10.24

Each brick absorbs one seventeenth of its own volume of water. How many bricks can be put in without overflowing the water, each brick being 22.5 cm x 7.5 cm x 6.5 cm?

**Solution:** Volume of cistern = length x width x depth

= 150 x 120 x 110

= 1980000 cm^{3}

Vacant space = Volume of cistern – Volume of water

= 1980000 – 129600 = 1850400 cm^{3}

Volume of brick = length x width x height

= 22.5 x 7.5 x 6.5

Since the brick absorbs one seventeenth its volume hence remaining volume will be equal to 16/17 the volume of brick

Remaining volume

Number of bricks = Remaining volume of cistern/remaining volume of brick

Each brick absorbs one seventeenth of its own volume of water. How many bricks can be put in without overflowing the water, each brick being 22.5 cm x 7.5 cm x 6.5 cm?

**Solution:** Volume of cistern = length x width x depth

= 150 x 120 x 110

= 1980000 cm^{3}

Vacant space = Volume of cistern – Volume of water

= 1980000 – 129600 = 1850400 cm^{3}

Volume of brick = length x width x height

= 22.5 x 7.5 x 6.5

Since the brick absorbs one seventeenth its volume hence remaining volume will be equal to 16/17 the volume of brick

Remaining volume

Number of bricks = Remaining volume of cistern/remaining volume of brick

Question 5: An oil funnel made of tin sheet consists of a 10 cm long cylindrical portion attached to a frustum of a cone. If the total height is 22 cm, diameter of the cylindrical portion is 8 cm and diameter of the top of the funnel is 18 cm, find the area of the tin sheet required to make the funnel.

**Solution:** Curved surface area of cylinder

Slant height of frustum can be calculated as follows:

Curved surface area of frustum

Total curved surface area
