# A cuboidal vessel is 10 m long and 8 m wide. How high must it be made to hold 380 cubic metres of a liquid?

**Solution:**

Given: Length and breadth of the cuboidal vessel are 10 m and 8 m respectively. It must hold 380 m^{3} of a liquid.

Since the vessel is cuboidal in shape, the volume of liquid in the vessel will be equal to the volume of the cuboid.

The volume of the cuboid of length l, breadth b, and height h, is V = l × b × h

Let the height of the cuboidal vessel be h.

Length of the cuboidal vessel, l = 10 m

The breadth of the cuboidal vessel, b = 8 m

The capacity of the cuboidal vessel (V) = 380 m^{3}

Volume of the liquid in the cuboidal vessel = l × b × h

l × b × h = 380m^{3}

10 m × 8 m × h = 380m^{3}

h = 380 / (10 × 8)

h = 4.75 m

Thus, the cuboidal vessel must be made 4.75 m high.
