A hall is 15 m long and 12 m broad. If the sum of the areas of the floor and the ceiling is equal to the sum of the areas of four walls, the volume of the hall is:
Answer: Option
Explanation:
2(15 + 12) x h = 2(15 x 12)
h = | 180 | m = | 20 | m. |
27 | 3 |
Volume = | 15 x 12 x | 20 | m^{3} | = 1200 m^{3}. | |

According to the question,
Sum of areas of floor and the ceilings= 4 walls area sum
Floor area = ceiling area.
Floor area= 12 * 15 = 180.
Therefore 360 = 4 areas of walls.
Floor-length = wall length.
So height of the wall = (360/4)/15= 90/15 = 6m.
the volume of the hall is one type of cuboid.
Therefore volume of cuboid = length * breadth * height.
Volume = 15 * 12 * 6 = 1080 meter cube.
Sum of areas of floor and the ceilings= 4 walls area sum
Floor area = ceiling area.
Floor area= 12 * 15 = 180.
Therefore 360 = 4 areas of walls.
Floor-length = wall length.
So height of the wall = (360/4)/15= 90/15 = 6m.
the volume of the hall is one type of cuboid.
Therefore volume of cuboid = length * breadth * height.
Volume = 15 * 12 * 6 = 1080 meter cube.

Why we using the cuboid formula? Please explain.

2*(l*h)+ 2*(b*h)= 2*(l*b).
4 walls area = floor area + ceiling area.
4 walls area = floor area + ceiling area.

The solution is wrong as it is said it is equal to the area of the 4 walls so, 4 should be multiplied.

Roof + ceiling area = 4 side walls.
W.k.t area of rectangle l x b.
(12 x 15) + (12 x 15)= 12h + 15h + 12h + 15h.
2(12 x 15) = 2(12h + 15h).
2(12 x 15) = 2h(12+15).
2(12 x 15)
----------------- = h
2 x 27
Volume = LBH.
L=15 b=12 and h is 54.
Then, Volume= 1200.
W.k.t area of rectangle l x b.
(12 x 15) + (12 x 15)= 12h + 15h + 12h + 15h.
2(12 x 15) = 2(12h + 15h).
2(12 x 15) = 2h(12+15).
2(12 x 15)
----------------- = h
2 x 27
Volume = LBH.
L=15 b=12 and h is 54.
Then, Volume= 1200.
