#### Solution

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 is2r=a.

So, the radius of semicircle

r=a/2

=40/2

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
