1. Surface Area

2. Volume

3. l x b x h

4. Half

5. 41 sq cm
(Area = 10 x 8.2 /2 = 41 sq cm)

6. 30 cm
(Length of one diagonal = 16 cm
Area of the rhombus = 240
Therefore, length of other diagonal = 240 x 2/16 = 30)

7. 64 cu cm
(Volume = 4 x 4 x 4 = 64)

8. Capacity

9. Litres

10. 11 cm
(Volume of a cuboid = Base area x Height
Height = Volume /Base area = 275/ 25 = 11 cm)

11. Squares

12. 36 cu cm
(Volume = l x b x h = 12 x 3 x 1 = 36)

13. 1000 L

14. Identical

15. 120 sq cm
(Area = l x b = 30 x 4 = 120 sq cm)
