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
