# Value-Based Questions: Surface Areas & Volumes - Mathematics (Maths) Class 9

Question 1. Shanti Sweets stall placed an order to Mr. Kishorilal for making cardboard boxes for packing their sweets. Two sizes of boxes are ordered. The bigger of dimensions 25cm × 20cm × 5cm and the smaller of dimensions 15cm × 12cm × 5cm. For all the overlaps, 5% of the total surface is required extra. 250 boxes of each kind are required. Cost of the cardboard is ₹ 4 for 1000 cm2. By mistake Shanti Sweets Stall made payment according to the bigger boxes, but Mr. Kishorilal returned back the excess money.
(a) What amount was returned back by Mr. Kishorilal to the Shanti Sweets Stall?
(b) Which mathematical concept is used in the above problem?
(c) By returning back the access money, which value is depicted by Mr. Kishorilal?
Sol.
(a) Total surface area of 250 bigger boxes:variety

Surface area of 1 box = 2 (lb + bh + hl)

= 2 (25 × 20 + 20 × 5 + 5 × 25) cm2
= 2 (500 + 100 + 125) cm
= 2 × 725 cm= 1450 cm
∴ Surface area of 250 boxes = 250 × 1450 cm
= 362500 cm2

Total surface area of 250 smaller boxes :

= 2 (15×12 + 12×5 + 5×15) cm2
= 2 (180 + 60 + 75) cm2 = 630 cm2
∴ Total surface area of 250 boxes = 250 × 630 cm2 = 157500 cm2
Total surface area of both kinds of boxes = 362500 cm+ 157500 cm2 = 520000 cm2
Area for overlaping = 5% of 520000 cm2 = 26000 cm2
∴ Total surface area for which actual payment is to be made = 520000 cm2 + 26000 cm2 = 546000 cm2
Actual cost = (4/1000)× 546000 = ₹ 2184
But by mistake the payment is made for 500 boxes, each of dimension 25cm × 20cm × 5cm
∴ Total surface area 250 + 250 boxes for wrong payment = 500 × 2 [lb × bh × hl]
= 500 × 2 [25 × 20 + 20 × 5 + 5 × 25] cm2
= 500 × 1450 cm2 = 725000 cm2
Area for overlaping = 5% of 725000 = 36250 cm
Total surface area for wrong payment = (72500 + 36250) cm2 = 761250 cm
∴ Wrong payment made by the Shanti Sweets Stall =₹ (4/1000)× 761250 = ₹ 3045
⇒ Excess amount paid by Shanti Sweets Stall to Mr. Kishorilal = ₹ 3045 – ₹ 2184 = ₹ 861
(b) Surface Areas and Volumes.
(c) Honesty.

(a) What is the surface area of the glass used?
(b) How much of tape is needed for all the 12 edges?
(c) Which mathematical concept is used in the above problem?
(d) By erecting a greenhouse, which skill is depicted by Rahul?
Sol
. The herbarium is in the form of a cuboid, having l = 30cm, b = 25cm and h = 25cm.

(a) ∵ Surface area of the herbarium =2 [lb + bh + hl]
= 2 [(30 × 25) + (25 × 25) + (25 × 30)] cm2
= 2 [750 + 625 + 750] cm2
= 2 [2125] cm2 = 4250 cm2
⇒ The surface area of the herbarium = 4250 cm2

(b) Total length of 12 edges = 4l + 4b + 4h = 4 [l + b + h]
= 4 [30 + 25 + 25] cm
= 320 cm ⇒ 320 cm of tape is needed.

(c) Surface Areas and Volumes [Mensuration]

(d) Betterment of the environment.

(b) Which mathematical concept is used in the above problem?
(c) By using the pocket-money saving to buy paints for community-centre, which values are depicted by Nitin?
Sol.
(a) Since, a brick is like a cuboid having l = 22.5 cm, b = 10 cm, h = 7.5 cm
∴ Total surface area of a brick = 2 [lb + bh + hl]
= 2 [(22.5 × 10) + (10 × 7.5) + (7.5 × 22.5)] cm
= 2 [225 + 75 + 168.75] cm2
= 2 [468.75] cm2 = 937.5 cm2
Let the required number of bricks = n

Thus the required number of bricks = 100

(b) Surface Areas and Volumes [mensuration].

(c)(i) Saving money (ii) Charity.

(a) Find the cost of painting of all these cones.

(b) Which mathematical concept is used in the above problem?

(c) By barricading the school-bus stand using cones of recycled cardboard, which skills are depicted by the students of class IX of the Sagar School?

Sol. (a) Diameter of a cone = 40 cm
∴ Radius of a cone (r)= 40
2 cm = 20 cm = 20 m 100
= 0.2 m Height of a cone (h)= 1m
⇒ Slant height of a cone (l)=

= 1.02 m [∵ It is given that √(1.04)= 1.02]
Now, curved surface area of a cone = πrl                             [∵ Base of the cone is hollow]
⇒ Curved surface area of 1 cone = 3.14 × 0.2 × 1.02 m2

⇒ Curved surface area of 50 cones

Cost of Painting :
∵ The rate of painting is ₹ 12 per m2

∴ Total cost of 50 cones
