  • Statement of the problem

A bucket in the shape of a frustum with the top & bottom circles of radii 15cm and 10cm Its depth(height) is 12cm .CSA & TSA to be calculated length of frustum to be found.

  • Assumptions
  1. Student should know CSA & TSA of frustum of cone
  2. Student should know the value of л=22/7
  3. Student should know the difference between radius , height(depth),lenght
  4. Student should know the proper substitution simplification

Concepts to be taught

  1. Lenght of frustum l=
  2. CSA & TSA of frustum of cone


  1. difference between radius , height(depth) and lenght


  1. To imagine the frustum of a cone having unequal circles at the top & bottom.
  2. To imagine that the frustum a cone is having height(depth) inside & length out side.


  • Part-01
  1. To calculate the Lenght of frustum

given:=15cm,=10cm, h=12cm

Lenght of frustum l=






  • Part-02
  1. To calculate CSA

CSA= Failed to parse (syntax error): {\displaystyle π(r_{1}+r_{2})l} Where l=

CSA=Failed to parse (syntax error): {\displaystyle π(15+10)13}

CSA=Failed to parse (syntax error): {\displaystyle 25 X 13 X π}

CSA=Failed to parse (syntax error): {\displaystyle 325πcm^2}

  1. To calculate TSA

TSA= Failed to parse (syntax error): {\displaystyle π({(r_{1}+r_{2})l+r_{1}^2+r_{2}^2})}

TSA =Failed to parse (syntax error): {\displaystyle π({(15+ 10) 13 +15^2+10^2})}

TSA = Failed to parse (syntax error): {\displaystyle π({25X13 + 225 + 100})}

TSA = Failed to parse (syntax error): {\displaystyle ({325 + 225 + 100})π}

TSA =Failed to parse (syntax error): {\displaystyle 650πcm^2}
