Q : 8 Parveen wanted to make a temporary shelter for her car, by making a box-like structure with tarpaulin that covers all the four sides and the top of the car (with the front face as a flap which can be rolled up). Assuming that the stitching margins are very small, and therefore negligible, how much tarpaulin would be required to make the shelter of height , with base dimensions ?
Given, Dimensions of the tarpaulin =
The required amount of tarpaulin = Lateral surface area of the shelter + Area of top
Therefore, tarpaulin is required.
