To find cost of painting or tilling when area and cost per unit is given are discussed here.
To find the cost, find the area and multiply it by cost per sq. unit.
For Example:
1. Find the cost of painting a wall of length 80 m and breadth 15 m at the rate of $ 4 per sq. m.
Solution:
Area of wall = length × breadth
Here, length = 80 m and breadth = 15 m.
= 80 × 15 sq. m.
= 1200 sq. m.
Therefore, painting the wall = area × cost per square unit.
Given, rate = $ 4 per sq. m.
= 1200 × 4
= $ 4800.
2. Find the cost of painting a house of length 160 m and breadth 120 m at the rate of $ 5 per sq. m.
Solution:
Area of wall = length × breadth
Here, length = 160 m and breadth = 120 m.
= 160 × 120 sq. m.
= 19200 sq. m.
Therefore, painting the wall = area × cost per square unit.
Given, rate = $ 5 per sq. m.
= 19200 × 5
= $ 3840.
