Question

# Adam wraps the top edge of the gift box shown with gold ribbon. The top and bottom edges of the box are square. If Adam has 24 . 25 cm. of gold ribbon , does he have enough to decorate the top of the box ?

## The correct answer is: Use the formula of volume

### Here, we have volume = 296Height = 8We know that,  …(i)Since it is a square,here length = breadthOn substituting the known values in (i), we haveTo find the perimeter we have the formula, , where a is the side length of a square. This means that Adam needs 24.4 cm of gold ribbon to wrap the top edge.Here Adam has only 24.25 cm, but he needs 24.4cm.Hence we can say that he doesn't have enough gold ribbon to decorate the top of the box.

The volume formula is a mathematical expression that can be used to calculate the total amount of space (vacuum) occupied by any three-dimensional object.
The volume of an object is the amount of three-dimensional space occupied by the object or shape. It is typically measured in cubic units. In other words, the volume of any object or container is its ability to hold the amount of fluid (gas or liquid). Using arithmetic formulas, the volume of three-dimensional mathematical shapes such as the cube, cuboid, cylinder, prism, and cone, among others, can be easily calculated.
Cuboid Formula
V = l × w × h
l represent Length
w represent Width
h represent Height
