Correct Answer - Option 1 : 60.06

Given:

Diameter of cone = 8.4m

Height of cone = 1.75m

Formula:

Curved surface area of cone = πrl

Calculation:

Radius of cone = 8.4/2 = 4.2 m

(Slant height)2 = radius2 + height2

(slant height)2 = 4.22 + 1.752 = 20.7025

Slant height = 4.55 m

Curved surface area of cone = πrl

= 22/7 × 4.2 × 4.55

= 60.06

∴ Area of canvas required is 60.06 m2.
