Solution

For each triangular piece,

Semi-perimeter,

`s=(20+50+50)/2=60 cm`

By Heron’s formula,

`"Area of triangle "=sqrt(s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c))`

`"Area of each triangle piece "=[sqrt(60(60-50)(60-50)(60-20))]cm^2`

                                          `=[sqrt(60(10)(10)(40))]cm^2`

                                          `=200sqrt6cm^2`

Since there are 5 triangular pieces made of two different coloured cloths,

`"Area of each cloth required "=(5xx200sqrt6)cm^2=1000sqrt6cm^2`
