K is a rectangular solid. Find the volume of K
(1) a diagonal line across the front face of K has a length of 40
(2) a diagonal line across the bottom face of K has a length of 25
Kudos for a correct solution.
Rectangular solid refers to a Cuboid.
FROM STATEMENT - I ( INSUFFICIENT )We can not find the volume of the Cuboid from the dimension of one diagonal.
FROM STATEMENT - II ( INSUFFICIENT )Same as statement I , We can not find the volume of the Cuboid from the dimension of one diagonal.
\(
FROM STATEMENT I AND II ( INSUFFICIENT )\)
We can not find the volume of a cuboid from the dimension of 2 diagonals , because the Volume of a Cuboid given the 3 diagonals as a , b and c is -
\(Volume \ of \ Cuboid = \sqrt{a^2 + b^2 + c^2}\)
Thus Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question asked, and additional data specific to the problem are needed , answer will be (E) _________________
