It is given that room  is 5.5\; m long and 4\; m wide.

It is clear that it is rectangular shaped with  length = 5.5 \ m \ and \ breadth = 4 \ m

We know that the area of the rectangle is = length \times breadth

\Rightarrow length \times breadth = 5.5 \times 4 = 22 \ m^2                   -(i)

Now, when verandah of width 2.25\; m  is constructed all along outside the room then length and breadth of the room  is


Area of the room after verandah of width 2.25\; m  is constructed

\Rightarrow length \times breadth = 10 \times 8.5 = 85 \ m^2                              -(ii)

Area of verandah is (ii) - (i)

\Rightarrow 85-22 = 63 \ m^2

Therefore, the area of the verandah is  63 \ m^2
