If two cardboard boxes occupy $$500$$ cubic centimetres space, then how much space is required to keep $$200$$ such boxes?

If the number of boxes increases, the space required to keep them also increases.
So, number of boxes increases is direct proportional to the space required.
Since, $$2$$ cardboard boxes occupy space of $$500$$ cubic centimetres.
Hence, $$1$$ cardboard box occupy space of $$\frac{500}{2}=250$$ cubic centimetres.
So, $$200$$ boxes occupy space of $$250\times200=50000$$ cubic centimetres.
Thus, the required space is $$50,000$$ cubic centimetres.
