A. 10

C. \(30\sqrt{3}\)

D. 100

E. \(300\sqrt{3}\)


Ratio of Volume = (Ratio of Sides)^3

Given, Ratio of Volumes of A and B = 1/3√3 = 1/√27 = (Ratio of Sides)^3

i.e. Ratio of Sides = 1/√3
i.e. Diagonal of cube A / Diagonal of Cube B = 1/√3
i.e. Diagonal of Cube B = 10√3 = Side√3
i.e. Side of Cube B = 10
i.e. Area of face of Cube B = 10^2 = 100

Answer:option D

E. \(300\sqrt{3}\)


VA:VB = 1: 3\sqrt{3}
let cube A & B have sides a & b resp.
=> \sqrt{3}a = 10
=> a = 10/\sqrt{3}
=> VA = 1000/(\sqrt{3})^3
Since VA:VB = 1:3\sqrt{3} , multiply by 1000/(\sqrt{3})^3
VB becomes 1000
=> b = 10
hence, surface area = 10*10 = 100

For the diagonal of cube A it is meant the space diagonal or the face diagonal?

Thank you for your help!
