#### Solution

Radius of top of bucket `r_1 = 42 / 2 = 21 "cm"`

Radius of bottom of bucket `r_2 = 28 / 2 = 14 "cm"`

Height of bucket, h = 24 cm.

`l = sqrt(h^2 (r_1 - r_2))`

`=sqrt(576 + (21 - 14)^2)`

`= sqrt (576 + 49)`

`=sqrt 625`

`= 25`

C.S.A. of the bucket

`= pi (r_1 + r_2)l`

`=pi (21 +14) xx 25`

`=22/7 xx 35 xx 25`

= 2750 cm^{2}

Area of bottom

`=pir^2`

`= 22 /7 xx 196`

`= 616 \ cm^2`

The cost of painting its C.S. ,

`=(2750 + 616) xx 1/2`

`=3366 xx 1/2`

`="Rs" 1683`
