# Q : 4     A conical tent is 10 m high and the radius of its base is 24 m. Find            (ii) cost of the canvas required to make the tent, if the cost of $\small 1\hspace{1mm}m^2$ canvas is Rs 70.

N Nehul

Given,

Base radius of the conical tent  = $r=24\ m$

Height of the conical tent = $h=10\ m$

$\therefore$ Slant height = $l=\sqrt{h^2+r^2} = 26\ m$

We know, Curved surface area of a cone $= \pi r l$

$\therefore$  Curved surface area of the tent

$\\ = \frac{22}{7}\times24\times26 \\ \\ =\frac{13728}{7}\ m^2$

Cost of $1\ m^2$ of canvas = $Rs.\ 70$

$\therefore$ Cost of $\frac{13728}{7}\ m^2$ of canvas =

$Rs.\ (\frac{13728}{7}\times70) = Rs.\ 137280$

Therefore, required cost of canvas to make tent is $Rs.\ 137280$
