 # A Rhombus Sheet, Whose Perimeter Is 32 M And Whose One Diagonal Is 10 M Long, Is Painted On Both Sides At The Rate Of ` 5 Per M2. Find The Cost Of Painting.

Sol:

Perimeter = 32 m.

Therefore,

The length of a side = $$\frac{32}{4}$$= 8m.

Diagonal of a rhombus = 10m.

As we know;

The halves of diagonals and the sides of a rhombus form a right-angled triangle with the side as the hypotenuse.

Let the length of the other diagonal =2x.

$$x^{2} + (\frac{10}{2})^{2} = 8^{2}\\\Rightarrow x^{2} + (\frac{100}{4}) = 64\\\Rightarrow x^{2} + 25 = 64\\\Rightarrow x^{2} = 64 – 25\\\Rightarrow x^{2} = 39\\\Rightarrow x = \sqrt{39}$$

The measure of the another diagonal of the rhombus = $$2 * \sqrt{39} = 2\sqrt{39} m$$

So, Area of the rhombus = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ * Diagonal of a rhombus * Measure of the another diagonal.

A = $$\frac{1}{2}$$ * 10 * 2 $$\sqrt{39}$$

A = 62.45 m2.

Painted on both sides at the rate of Rs 5 per m2.

Cost = Area of both side * 5

= 2 * 62.45 * 5

= 124.9 * 5

= 624.50 = Rs 625.

Therefore, the cost of the painting is Rs. 625.
