## Chapter 13 Surface Areas and Volumes Ex 13.9

Question 1.
A wooden bookshelf has external dimensions as follows : Height = 110cm, Depth = 25cm, Breadth = 85cm (see figure). The thickness of the plank is 5 cm everywhere. The external faces are to be polished and the inner faces are to be painted. If the rate of polishing-is 20 paise per cm2 and the rate of pointing is 10 paise per cm2, find the total expenses required for palishing and painting the surface of the bookshelf.

Solution:

Question 2.
The front compound wall of a house is decorated by wooden spheres of diameter 21 cm, placed on small supports as shown in figure. Eight such spheres are-used for this purpose, and are to be painted silver. Each support is a cylinder of radius 1.5 cm and height 7 cm and is to be painted black. Find the cost of paint required if silver paint costs 25 paise per cm2 and black paint costs 5 paise per cm2.

Solution:
It is obvious, we have to subtract the cost of the sphere that is resting on the supports while calculating the cost of silver paint.
Surface area to be silver paint

Question 3.
The diameter of a sphere is decreased by 25%. By what per cent does its curved surface area decrease?
Solution:
Let d be the diameter of the sphere
