How many solid cubes of 3 cm edge can be cut out of a solid cube of 18 cm edge?

A 36 B 232 C 216 D 484 Open in App Solution

The correct option is **B** 216

Given, edge length of the larger cube = 18 cm

and, edge length of the smaller cube = 3 cm

The volume is the space occupied by a body .So cutting an object does not change its volume.

So, number of smaller cubes × volume of each smaller cube = volume of the larger cube

Let 'n' be the number of smaller cubes.

Then, n =

volume of larger cube

volume of a smaller cube

We know, volume of a cube of side 'a' is

a 3 . ⇒ n = 18 × 18 × 18 3 × 3 × 3 ∴ n = 216

So, the number of solid cubes of 3 cm that can be cut out of a solid cube of 18 cm is 216.

**Given:**

The edge length of cube = 3 cm

**Formula used:**

Volume of cube = (side)3

**Calculation:**

Let the number of cubes that can be cut from bigger cube be N

And we know that,

N × Volume of smaller cube = Volume of bigger cube

⇒ N × (3)3 = (18)3 ⇒ N = (18)3/(3)3 ⇒ N = 216

**∴ Number of cubes that can be cut from bigger cube is 216.**

Correct option is B)

Given,Edge of large cube =18cm.

Edge of small cube $$=3cm$.

We know, volume of a cube V=a

3

, where a is the edge of the cube.

Then,

Volume of large cube =(18)

3 =5832cm 3 .

Volume of small cube =(3)

3 =27cm 3 .

Now, Number of cubes =

Volume of small cube

Volume of large cube

= 27 5832 =216.

Hence, 216 cubes can be cut out from the cube of 18cm edge.

Thus, option B is correct.
