# A matchbox measures 4 cm × 2.5 cm × 1.5 cm. What will be the volume of a packet containing 12 such boxes?

**Solution:**

Dimensions of a matchbox are 4cm × 2.5cm × 1.5cm

Since the matchbox is cuboidal in shape, the volume of each matchbox will be equal to the volume of the cuboid.

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

Length of the matchbox, l = 4 cm, Breadth of the matchbox, b = 2.5 cm, Height of the matchbox, h = 1.5 cm

The volume of each matchbox = l × b × h

= 4 cm × 2.5 cm × 1.5 cm

= 15 cm^{3}

Volume of 12 matchboxes = 12 × 15cm^{3} = 180cm^{3}

Thus, the volume of the packet containing 12 such matchboxes is 180 cm^{3}.
