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

This is a picture of the object and its measurments. (Sorry for the really bad quality)

Sorry if there are any mistakes.
