Area of rhombus = 1/2 (Product of its diagonals)

Area of each tile = (1/2 x 45 x30) cm2

= 675 cm2 

Area of 3000 tiles = (675 × 3000) cm2 

= 2025000 cm2 = 202.5 m2 

The cost of polishing is Rs 4 per m2.

Cost of polishing 202.5 m2 area 

= Rs (4 × 202.5)  = Rs 810 

Thus, the cost of polishing the floor is Rs 810.
