#### Question

A garden is in the form of a rhombus whose side is 30 metres and the corresponding altitude is 16 m. Find the cost of levelling the garden at the rate of Rs 2 per m2.

#### Solution

Given:
Side of the rhombus shaped garden = 30 m
Altitude = 16 m
Now, area of a rhombus = side x Altitude
$\therefore\text{ Area of the given garden }=30\times16=480 m^2$
${\text{ Also, it is given that the rate of levelling the garden is } \text{ Rs 2 per }1m}^2 .$
$\therefore {\text{ Total cost of levelling the complete garden of area }480 m}^2 =480\times2= \text{ Rs }960$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
