  1. Walls are 2 dimensional figure aren’t they. But he’s given 3 dimensions viz. Long, wide, high. How can it be? Can someone help me out?

  2. surface area of wall=2ab+2bc+2ca.since everything is doubled now new surface area=2*2a*2b+2*2b*2c+2*2c*2a.i.e 4 times of tne existing one.hence days required=4*3= 12 days
