## NCERT solutions for class 8 Maths Chapter 10 Visualising Solid Shapes Exercise 10.3

1.Can a polyhedron have for its faces
(i) 3 triangles?

(ii) 4 triangles?

(iii) a square and four triangles?

NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 10 Visualising Solid Shapes

A polyhedron is a solid which is bounded by four or more polygonal faces in such a way that pairs of faces meet along edges and three or more edges meet in each vertex.Therefore,
(i)No because a polyhedron cannot for its faces have three triangles.

(ii)Yes (iii)Yes 2.Is it possible to have a polyhedron with any given number of faces? (Hint : Think of a pyramid)

NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 10 Visualising Solid Shapes

Yes, it is possible only if the number of faces are equal or greater than four.

3.Which are prisms among the following ? NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 10 Visualising Solid Shapes

Here we have only (ii) unsharpened pencils and (iv) a box as the prism.

4.(i) How are prisms and cylinders alike?
(ii) How are pyramids and cones alike?

NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 10 Visualising Solid Shapes

(i) If the number of sides of its base becomes larger and larger then a prism becomes a cylinder.
(ii) If the number of sides of its base becomes larger and larger then a pyramid becomes a cone

5.Is a square prism same as a cube? Explain.

NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 10 Visualising Solid Shapes

Yes it can be but every square prism cannot be cube. It may be cuboid also.

6.Verify Euler’s formula for these solids. NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 10 Visualising Solid Shapes

(i) In this given figure we have,
F = 7, V = 10, E =15

? F + V =7 + 10 = 17 and E + 2 =15 + 2 = 17

$?$ F+V=E+ 2

Thus, Euler’s formula is verified.

(ii) In this given figure,

F =9, V = 9,E =16

? F + V =9 + 9 =18 and E + 2 =16 +2 =18

$?$ F + V =E + 2

Thus, Euler’s formula is verified.

7.Using Euler’s formula find the unknown. NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 10 Visualising Solid Shapes

In the first case we have: Vertices =6, Edges =12
By Euler’s formula, F + V= E + 2

F= 12 + 2-6 =8

Hence, faces =8

In 2nd case we have : Faces = 5, Edges = 9

By Euler’s formula, F + V = E + 2

V = E + 2 – F = 9+ 2- 5 = 6

Hence, vertices =6

In 3rd case we have : Faces =20, Vertices =12

By Euler’s formula, we know that F+V=E+2

E = F + V – 2 = 20 + 12 – 2 = 30

Hence, edges =30

8.Can a polyhedron have 10 faces, 20 edges and 15 vertices?

NCERT Solutions for Class 8 Maths Chapter 10 Visualising Solid Shapes

Since F + V $?$ E +2 (as 10 +15 ? 20 + 2) so a polyhedron cannot have 10 faces, 20 edges and 15 vertices.
