Mr. Gardener

Mr. Gardener wants to make wood for the balcony. Boxes. Each will have the shape of a perpendicular prism with a square base, the height is limited to 60 cm. Each container will be filled with soil by pouring the whole bag of substrate sold in a package with a volume of 80 l into it. The soil reaches 10 cm from the upper edge of the container. How long will the inner edge of such a box be?

Correct answer:

a =  40 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

c=60 cm c2=10 cm V2=80 l cm3=80 1000  cm3=80000 cm3  V2=a2 (cc2)  a=V2cc2=800006010=40 cm
