1. ## my ans n given ans not same .. y?

my ans for (a)i ---> 236cm cube.
the given ans is ---> 240 cm cube ?
hu is rite?!? and how to find length of AG?

Hello,

you are dealing with a prism.

$\displaystyle V_{prism}=l\times w\times h$

The base area is 8 cm long and 5 cm wide, that means the area is 40 cm^2. The height of the prism is 6 cm. So

$\displaystyle V_{prism}=8 cm \times 5 cm \times 6 cm=240 cm^3$

The length of the diagonal through the space of the prism is calculated by:

$\displaystyle d=\sqrt{l^2+w^2+h^2}$. Plug in the values you know:

$\displaystyle d=\sqrt{(8 cm)^2+(5 cm)^2+(6 cm)^2}=\sqrt{125 cm^2}=5\cdot \sqrt{5} cm$ $\displaystyle \approx 11.18 cm$

You can use the property that the length of tangents to a circle from an external point are equal.

Hi,
I noticed that the link I gave you doesn't work. No Idea why this happens now.
