Dear Student

Length of suitcase box, l = 80 cm,
Breadth of suitcase box, b= 48 cm
And Height of cuboidal box , h = 24 cm
Total surface area of suitcase box = 2(lb+bh+hl)
= 2(80×48+48×24+24×80)
= 2 (3840+1152+1920)
= 2×6912
= 13824
Total surface area of suitcase box is 13824cm^2
Area of Tarpaulin cloth = Surface area of suitcase
l×b = 13824
l ×96 = 13824
l = 144
Required tarpaulin for 100 suitcases = 144×100 = 14400 cm = 144 m
Hence tarpaulin cloth required to cover 100 suitcases is 144 m.

Thanks
