## Answers ( )

Step-by-step explanation:

Lenght-80cm

Breadth-40cm

Height-20cm

We have to find the area of CUBOIDAL box

-Area of CUBOID-2(lb+bh+hl)

PUT THE VALUES IN THE FORMULA

=2(80×40+40×20+20×80)

=2(3200+800+1600)

=2(5600)

=11,200 cm sq

Therefore Area of box =11,200cm sq

NOW WE WILL FIND THE SHEETS REQUIRED

Square sheets required= Area of box÷square sheets of 40cm

=11,200÷40

=280 SHEETS

THEREFORE SHEETS REQUIRED ARE 280.

Answer:280 sheets is answer dear friend
