**Question 3.**

Find the side of a cube whose surface area is 600 \({ cm }^{ 2 }\).

**Solution.**

Let the side of the cube be a cm.

Then, Total surface area of the cube = 6\({ a }^{ 2 }\)

According to the question,

6\({ a }^{ 2 }\)= 600

⇒ \({ a }^{ 2 }\) = \(\frac { 600 }{ 6 } \)

⇒ \({ a }^{ 2 }\) = 100

⇒ a = \(\sqrt { 100 } \)

⇒ a = 10 cm

Hence, the side of the cube is 10 cm.

**Question 4.**

Rukhsar painted the outside of the cabinet of measure 1 m x 2 m x 1.5 m. How much surface area did she cover if she painted all except the bottom of the cabinet?
