### Question 1

When a weight W kg. is kept on a 6 m × 3 m boat floating over a lake, it sinks by 2 cm. What is W, if the density of water is 1000 kg/cu. m?

### Question 2

A room has a floor size of 5 × 41 sq. m. What is the height of the room if the sum of the areas of the base and roof is equal to the sum of the areas of the four walls?

**A**

$4{21/46}$ m.

**B**

$5{26/45}$ m.

**C**

$3{5/16}$ m.

**D**

$7{7/48}$ m.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let h be the height, and l and b be the length and breadth. We are given lb + lb = lh + hb + lh + hb. Combining the terms and cancelling 2, we get lb = h(l + b), which gives h = ${lb}/{l + b}$ = ${5 × 41}/{5 + 41}$ = ${205/46}$, which is same as: $4{21/46}$ m.
