Best answer

Here, l = 5 m, b = 4 m, h = 3 m 

Surface area of the walls of the room and the ceiling 

= 2h (l + b) + lb 

= [2 × 3 (5 + 4) + 5 × 4] m2 

= (6 × 9 + 20) m2 = 74 m2 

Cost of white washing = Rs 7.50 per m2 

∴ total cost of white washing the walls and the ceiling of the room 

= Rs 74 × 7.50 = Rs 555 Ans.
