It is given that the side of square . `a=40 m`

Since four semicircular grassy plots rounds a square water tank. Then, diameter of semicircular plot is`2r=a`.

So, the radius of semicircle



`20 m`

Area of semicirular plot=`1/2 pir^2`

`= 1/2xx3.14xx20xx20`

`=628 m^2`

Now, the total area of plot is sum of area of four semicircular plots.

`"Total Area of plot"=4xx "Area of semicircle"`

                             `=4xx628 m^2`

                           `   = 2512 m^2`

Since, The cost of turding the plot per squre meter=`Rs.1.25`

So, The cost turfing 2512 square meter plot= `Rs1.25xx2512`

`= Rs 3140`
