Question

There is a square park in the society. The management wants to put a circular fountain at the centre of the park with diameter 14 m. The remaining area is to be covered with grass. If the cost of laying grass is  20 per m2 and the cost of constructing the fountain is 10 per m2 . Find the length of the field if the total cost incurred is 6460 .( Use π = 22/7)


___


Solution

Diameter of a circular fountain= 14 m, so radius = 7 m.

Let the length of the square be 'a'.

 Total cost = cost of fountain + cost of grass.

Hence, 6460 = (area of fountain x cost per m2) + (area of square park -area of circular fountain) x (cost for grass per m2)

6460 = (π(7)2×10)+((a2π(7)2×20)

6460 = (154×10)+(a2154)×20

6460 =1540+(a2154)×20 

a = 20 m.
