Here, l = 1.5 m, b = 1.25 m, h = 65 cm = 0.65 m. 

Since the box is open at the top, it has only five faces. 

(i) So, surface area of the box = lb + 2(bh + hl) 

= 1.5 × 1.25 m2 + 2 (1.25 × 0.65 + 0.65 × 1.5) m

= 1.875 + 2 (1.7875) m

= (1.875 + 3.575) m2 = 5.45 m

Hence, 5.45 m2 of sheet is required Ans. 

(ii) Cost of 1 m2 of the sheet = Rs 20 

∴ cost of 5.45 m2 of the sheet = Rs 20 × 5.45 m2 = Rs 109 Ans
