In this page perimeter and area solution5 we are going to see solution of some practice questions.
Question 5 :
A garden is in the form of a triangle. Its base is 26 m and height is 28 m. Find the cost of leveling the garden at Rs 5 per m².
Base length of triangle field (b) = 26 m
Height of triangle field (h) = 28
To find how much area to be leveled, we have to find the area of the right triangular field.
Area of right angle triangle = (1/2) x b x h
= (1/2) x 26 x 28
= 13 x 28
= 364 m²
Cost of leveling the garden = Rs 5 per m²
Required cost = 364 x 5
= Rs 1820
Therefore the required cost is Rs 1820
