# The number of planks of dimensions (4 m × 50 cm × 20 cm) that can be stored in a pit which is 16 m long, 12m wide and 40 m deep is

a. 1900

b. 1920

c. 1800

d. 1840

**Solution:**

Given, the dimension of a pit is 16m long, 12 m wide and 40 m deep.

The dimension of plank is 4 m × 50 cm × 20 cm

We have to find the number of planks that can be stored in the pit.

Given, length of the plank = 4 m

Width of the plank = 50 cm = 0.5 m

Thickness of the plank = 20 cm = 0.2 m

Volume of the plank = length × width × thickness

= 4 × 0.5 × 0.2

= 4 m³

Given, length of the pit = 16 m

Breadth of the pit = 12 m

Height of the pit = 40 m

Volume of the pit = length × breadth × height

= 16 × 12 × 40

= 16 × 480

= 7680 m³

Number of planks that can be stored in the pit = volume of pit / volume of one plank

= 7680/4

= 1920

Therefore, the number of planks that can be stored is 1920.
