Solution

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
