**Some questions from NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 15 – Mensuration**

**Q.1. In a stack, there are 5 books each of thickness 20mm and 5 paper sheets each of thickness 0.016 mm. What is the total thickness of the stack? **

**Solution **

Thickness of 5 books = 5 × 20 = 100 mm

Thickness of 5 paper sheets = 5 × 0.016 = 0.080 mm

Total thickness of stack = 100 + 0.080 = 100.08 mm

= 1.0008 × 102

**Q.2. A plastic box 1.5 m long, 1.25 m wide and 65 cm deep is to be made. It is opened at the top. Ignoring the thickness of the plastic sheet, **

**(i) determine the area of the sheet **

**(ii) the cost of the sheet for it, if a sheet measuring 1 m2 costs Rs.20. **

**Solution **

= [2 × 1.5 × 0.65 + 2 × 1.25 × 0.65 + 1.5 × 1.25] m2

= (1.95 + 1.625 + 1.875)m2 = 5.45 m2

- ii) Cost of sheet per m2 area = Rs. 20

Cost of sheet of 5.45m2 area = Rs. 5.45 × 20

= Rs. 109
