Got the concept of the surface area and volume of different shapes, now we will see an example word problems, then we will do other problems whose area worksheets were given.

**An entrance hall is 12m broad and 15m long. If the sum of the areas of the ceiling and the floor is equal to the addition of 4 walls, then what is the hall’s volume?**

Solution:

Let’s find out the height h first,

h*2 (12+15) =2 (12*15)

h= 180/27m

=20/3m.

Therefore volume = [15*12* (20/3)]

= 1200 meter cube.
