Q:
# Sally has 72 small wooden cubes each measuring 1cm x 1cm x 1cm. She arranged them all so that they form a cuboid. Given that the perimeter of the base of the cuboid is 16cm, what is it’s height?

Accepted Solution

A:

The perimeter means "all around", so all the sides of the base equals 16 cm, which means that one side must equal 4 cm.

Since the shape is a cube, all the sides are the same, which means that the height MUST be 4 cm. A. 4 cm is your answer
