• # question_answer 23) What is the cost of tiling a rectangular plot of land 500 m long and 200 m wide at the rate of  8 per hundred sq m? TIPS Firstly, find the area of a rectangular plot. Then, to find the required cost, multiply the area by rate of tiling i.e.$\frac{8}{100}.$ [$\because$rate =  8 per hundred sq m]

Given, length of a rectangular plot = 500 m and breadth of a rectangular plot = 200 m $\therefore$Area of the rectangular plot = Length $\times$ Breadth $=500m\times 200m=100000sqm$ $\because$Cost of tiling per hundred square metres =  8 $\therefore$ Cost of one sq metre =  $\frac{8}{100}$ Now, cost of 100000 sq metre =  $10000\times \frac{8}{100}=$  8000 Hence, the cost of tiling rectangular plot is ` 8000.
