The length, breadth and height of a room are 5 m, 4 m and 3 m respectively. Find the cost of white washing the walls of the room and the ceiling at the rate of Rs 7.50 per m2.
It is given that
Length (l) of room = 5 m
Breadth (b) of room = 4 m
Height (h) of room = 3 m
It can be observed that four walls and the ceiling of the room are to be white-washed. The floor of the room is not to be white-washed.
Area to be white-washed = Area of walls + Area of ceiling of room
= 2lh + 2bh + lb
= [2 × 5 × 3 + 2 × 4 × 3 + 5 × 4] m2
= (30 + 24 + 20) m2
= 74 m2
Cost of white-washing per m2 area = Rs 7.50
Cost of white-washing 74 m2 area = Rs (74 × 7.50)
= Rs 555
