#### Question

A conical tent is 10 m high and the radius of its base is 24 m. Find the slant height of the tent. If the cost of 1 2 m canvas is Rs. 70, find the cost of the canvas required to make the tent.

#### Solution

Given that

Height of conical tent (h)=10m

Radius of conical tent (r) = 24m

Let slant height of conical tent be l

`l^2=h^2+r^2=(10m)^2+(24m)^2=(100+576)m^2`

=`676m^2`

l=26m.

Thus, the slant height of the conical tent is 26 .

(ii) Given that

Radius (r)=24

Slant height (l)=26

CSA of tent =`pirl=22/7xx24xx26=13728/7m^2`

Cost of `1m^2`canvas S=Rs.70.

`Cost of 13728/7m^2 canvas= 13728/7xx10`

= Rs.1,37,280.

Thus, the cost of canvas required to make the tent is Rs. 137280.
