Cube-shaped box

Design the size of the smallest possible cube-shaped box where three types of 3cm, 5cm, 6cm small cubes could be stacked to make full use of the box space (each type of cube separately). Can you find out how many smallest cubes are in the box?

Result

a =  30 cm
b =  1000

Solution:

3=35=56=23LCM(3,5,6)=235=30  a=LCM(3,5,6)=30=30  cm 3 = 3 \\ 5 = 5 \\ 6 = 2 \cdot 3 \\ LCM(3, 5, 6) = 2 \cdot 3 \cdot 5 = 30\\ \ \\ \ \\ a = LCM(3,5,6) = 30 = 30 \ \text{ cm }
b=(30/3)3=1000b = (30/3)^{ 3 } = 1000



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
