### volume and surface area questions...

Problem 1

How much cement is needed to build a sidewalk that is one thousand, one hundred twenty metres long, four metres wide and fifty centimetres thick? Round your answer to the nearest cubic metre.

v= length x width x height

= 1120 x .5

= 560 x 4

= 2240 m³

Problem 3

If you have five 5 cm by 5 cm x 5 cm aluminum cubes and superglue them together in a row, what is the surface area of the resulting shape made by the five cubes?

5 x 5 = 25

25 x 5 = 125

25 x 5 = 125

Multiply each by TWO since there are six sides.

25(2) = 50cm²

125(2) = 250cm²

125(2) = 250 cm²

Add your answers and you’ll find the surface area.

50+ 250 +250 = 550cm²
