# A cuboidal water tank is 6 m long, 5 m wide and 4.5 m deep. How many litres of water can it hold? (1 m^{3} = 1000 L)

**Solution:**

Length, breadth, and depth of the cuboidal water tank are 6 m, 5 m, and 4.5 m respectively.

Since the water tank is cuboidal in shape, the volume of water in the tank 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

Length of the cuboidal tank, l = 6 m, Breadth of the cuboidal tank, b = 5 m, Height of the cuboidal tank, h = 4.5 m

Volume of the cuboidal tank = l × b × h

V = 6m × 5m × 4.5m

V = 135 m^{3}

V = 135 × 1000L

V = 135000L (1m^{3} = 1000L)

Thus, the cuboidal water tank can hold 135000 litres of water.
