Q. 16

# A 80 m by 64 m rectangular lawn has two roads, each 5 m wide, running through its middle, one parallel to its length and the other parallel to its breadth. Find the cost of gravelling the roads at RS. 40 per m2.

Given: A 80 m by 64 m rectangular lawn has two roads, each 5 m wide, running through its middle, one parallel to its length and the other parallel to its breadth.

To find: The cost of gravelling the roads at RS. 40 per m2.

Solution:

Length = 80 m

Breadth = 64 m

Width of road = 5 m

Area of horizontal road = 5 m × 80 m = 400 m2

Area of vertical road = 5 m × 64 m = 320 m2

Area of common part to both roads = 5 m × 5 m = 25 m2

Now,

Area of roads to be gravelled = Area of horizontal road + Area of vertical road - Area of common part to both roads

= 400 m2 + 320 m2 - 25 m2

= 695 m2

Cost of gravelling = 695 m2 × Rs 40 per m2

= Rs 27800
