# Find the cost of digging a cuboidal pit 8 m long, 6 m broad and 3 m deep at the rate of ₹ 30 per m^{3}.

**Solution:**

The length, breadth, and depth of the cuboidal pit are 8 m, 6 m, and 3 m respectively. The rate of digging the pit is ₹30 per m³.

We have to find the cost of digging the cuboidal pit.

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

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

We can find the cost of digging the pit by multiplying the volume of the pit and the rate of digging.

Length of the cuboidal pit, l = 8 m

Breadth of the cuboidal pit, b = 6 m

Height of the cuboidal pit, h = 3 m

Volume of the cuboidal pit = l × b × h

= 8m × 6m × 3m

= 144 m^{3}

Thus, the cost of digging the pit at ₹ 30 per m^{3} = ₹ 30 × 144 = ₹ 4320
