# A solid cuboid of dimensions 8 cm x 4 cm x 2 cm is melted and cast into identical cubes of edge 2 cm. Number of such identical cubes is :

**Answer: (1) 8 **

**Explanation:-**

The dimensions of a cuboid = 8 cm x 4 cm x 2 cm

Then, the volume of the cuboid = 8 x 4 x 2

= 64 cm^3

The edge of identical cube = 2 cm

Then, the volume of the cube = 2 x 2 x 2

= 8 cm^3

Then, the number identical cube of 2 cm = 64/8

= 8

Hence, the correct answer is option (1) 8.
