Given:

The length and width of the rectangular plot of land is $500\ m$ and $200\ m$ respectively.

To do:

We have to find the cost of tiling the rectangular plot of land $500\ m$ and $200\ m$ wide at the rate of $Rs. 8$ per hundred sq m.

Solution:

The length of the rectangular plot of land $=500\ m$

The width of the rectangular plot of land $=200\ m$

The area of the rectangular plot of land $=500\times200$

$=100000\ m^2$

Since,

The cost of tiling the rectangular plot $= Rs.\ 8\ per\ hundred\ sq\ m$

The cost of tiling the rectangular plot of land for $100000\ m^2$ $=\frac{8\times100000}{100}$

$= Rs.\ 8000$

The cost of tiling the rectangular plot of land $500\ m$ long and $200\ m$ wide at the rate of $Rs.\ 8$ per hundred sq m is $Rs. 8000$.
