# A wooden box has inner dimensions l =6 m, b =8 m and h =9 m and it has a uniform thickness of 10 cm. The lateral surface of the outer side has to be painted at the rate of Rs. 50/ m2. What is the cost of painting?

Given, a wooden box has inner dimensions l =6 m, b =8 m and h =9 m and a uniform thickness of

10 cm.

Length = 6 + 0.20

= 6.2 m

Breadth = 8 + 0.20

= 8.2 m

Height = 9 + 0.20

= 9.2 m

We know, Lateral Surface Area of cuboid = 2h(l+b)

Lateral Surface Area = 2h(l+b)

= 2×9.2×(6.2+8.2)

= 18.4×14.4

= 264.96 m2

The rate of painting lateral surface of the outer side = Rs. 50/m2

Cost of painting = Rs. 50 × 264.96

= Rs. 13248
