Q:

# If each edge of a cube is increased by 50%, find the percentage increase in Its surface area

 A) 125% B) 150% C) 175% D) 110%

Explanation:

Let the edge = a cm

So increase by 50 % = a + a/2 = 3a/2

Total surface Area of original cube = $6a2$

TSA of new cube = $63a22$ =$69a24$=  $13.5a2$

Increase in area = $13.5a2-6a2$ =$7.5a2$

$7.5a2$ Increase % =$7.5a26a2×100$ = 125%
