# A rhombus sheet whose perimeter is $32\ m$ and whose one diagonal is $10\ m$ long, is painted on both sides at the rate of $Rs.\ 5\ per\ m^2$. Find the cost of painting.

Given:

A rhombus sheet whose perimeter is $32\ m$ and whose one diagonal is $10\ m$ long, is painted on both sides at the rate of $Rs.\ 5\ per\ m^2$.

To do:

We have to find the cost of the painting.

Solution:

Length of each side of the rhombus $=\frac{32}{4}$

$= 8\ m$

Length of one of the diagonals $AC = 10\ m$

In $\triangle ABC$,

$a=8\ m, b= 8\ m, c= 10\ m$

$s=\frac{a+b+c}{2}$

$=\frac{8+8+10}{2}$

$=\frac{26}{2}$

$=13$

Area of the triangle $ABC=\sqrt{s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)}$

$=\sqrt{13(13-8)(13-8)(13-10)}$

$=\sqrt{13 \times 5 \times 5 \times 3}$

$=5 \sqrt{39} \mathrm{~m}^{2}$

Area of one sides of sheet $=2 \times 5 \sqrt{39}$

$=10 \sqrt{39} \mathrm{~m}^{2}$

Area of both sides of the sheet $=2 \times 10 \sqrt{39}$

$=20 \sqrt{39}$

$=20 \times 6.25$

$=125.0 \mathrm{~m}^{2}$

Rate of polishing both the sides of the sheet $= Rs. \5$ per $\mathrm{m}^{2}$

Total cost of polishing $=Rs. 125 \times 5$

$= Rs.\ 625$.
