A tank is 25 m long, 12 m wide and 6 m deep. The cost of plastering its walls and bottom at 75 paise per sq. m, is:

A. Rs. 456 B. Rs. 458
C. Rs. 558 D. Rs. 568

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

 

 

Area to be plastered = [2(l + b) x h] + (l x b)
  = {[2(25 + 12) x 6] + (25 x 12)} m2
  = (444 + 300) m2
  = 744 m2.

 

 

 Cost of plastering = Rs. 744 x 75 = Rs. 558.
