A lawn is in the form of a rectangle whose sides are in the ratio 5 : 3. The area of the lawn is `3375m^2` . Find the cost of fencing the lawn at ₹ 65 per metre.
Let the length and breadth of the rectangular lawn be 5xmand3 xm, respectively.
Area of the rectangular lawn `3375m^2`
⇒`3375=5x xx 3x`
Thus, we have:
Perimeter of the rectangular lawn =`2(l+b) `
Cost of fencing 1 m lawn = Rs 65
∴ Cost of fencing 240 m lawn = `240xx65=Rs 15,600`
