the cost of fencing a circular field at the rate of rs 24 per metre is rs 5280. the field is to be ploughed at the rate of rs 0.5 per m2. find the cost of ploughing the field

We first need to find the circumference of the circular field.....so we have...

 

5280/24  = 220m

 

Now....find the radius in meters

 

220  = 2*pi * r       divide by 2*pi

 

220/ (2 *pi)  = r

 

[110/pi ]   = r

 

So....the  area * cost per m^2  = total cost.....so we have

 

pi (110/pi)^2 * .5   ≈  rs 1926    [rounded]  

 

 

 

cool cool cool

5,280 / 24 = 220 meters - Circumference of the field

220/Pi =70.03 - Diameter of the field

70.03/2 =35.015 - Radius of the field.

Area =r^2 . Pi

Area =35.015^2 x Pi

Area =3,851.75 m^2 - the area of the field.

3,851.75 x 0.5 =1,925.875 rs - the cost of ploughing the field.
