# A container, open

Given: height of container frustum = h = 16 cm

Diameter of lower circular end = 16 cm

Diameter of upper circular end = 14 cm

Radius of lower circular end = r = 16/2 = 8 cm

Radius of upper circular end = R = 14/2 = 7 cm

Cost of 100 cm2 metal sheet = 10 Rs

Cost of 1 cm2 metal sheet = 10/100 = 0.1 Rs

Formula: Total surface area of frustum = πr2 + πR2 + π(R + r)l cm2

Where l = slant height

l = 16.0312 cm

Since the top is open we need to subtract the area of top/upper circle from total surface area of frustum because we don’t require a metal plate for top.

Radius of top/upper circle = R

Area of upper circle = πR2

area of metal sheet used = (total surface area of frustum)-πR2

= πr2 + πR2 + π(R + r)l- πR2 cm2

= πr2 + π(R + r)l cm2

= π × (82 + (7 + 8)16.0312) cm2

= 3.14 × 304.468 cm2

= 956.029 cm2

956.029 cm2 metal sheet is required to make the container.

Cost of 956.029 cm2 metal sheet = 956.029 × cost of 1 cm2 metal sheet

= 956.029 × 0.1 Rs

= 95.6029 Rs

Cost of metal sheet required to make container = 95.6029 Rs
