Solution: The sides of the cuboid are given as 5 cm, 2 cm and 5 cm. Volume of the cuboid = 5 cm × 2 cm × 5 cm = 50 cm3 For the prime factorisation of 50, we have 50 = 2 × 5 × 5 To make it a perfect cube, we must have 2 × 2 × 2 × 5 × 5 × 5 = 20 × (2 × 5 × 5) = 20 × volume of the given cuboid Thus, the required number of cuboids = 20.
