My question was question 8.
8. Six small boxes, all the same size, have been arranged as shown.
a) What are the dimensions of a single box?
My answer was, for a single box the width is 2 cm, the height is 1 cm and the length is 3 cm.
b) What is the surface are for the arrangement of the six boxes?
My answer was 96 cm2. I got this answer by finding the area of the side, top and front then multiplied it by 2.
The front is 6 cm2.
The side is 6 cm2.
The top is 36 cm2.
6 + 6 + 36 = 48 cm2
48 cm2 x 2 = 96 cm2
c) What is the ratio of the answer in part b) to the total surface area of the six seperate boxes?
96 / 12 = 8
132 / 12 = 11
96 : 132
8 : 11
The ratio of the two answers is 8 : 11
