# What is the cost of tiling a rectangular plot of land 500 m long and 200 m wide at the rate of ₹ 8 per hundred sq m.?

**Solution:**

We will be using the area of rectangle formula (length × breadth) for finding the area of the rectangular plot followed by multiplying the area with the rate of tiling to calculate the cost of tilling.

Here length is given as 500 m and breadth is given as 200 m hence, the area can be calculated using the given formula.

Area of rectangular plot = length × breadth

Area of rectangular plot = 500 × 200

= 1,00,000 m^{2}

Now, the cost of tilling the rectangular plot per hundred sq m. = ₹8

So, the cost of tiling 1,00,000 sq m. of land = (8/100) × 1,00,000 = ₹ 8000

Therefore, the cost of tiling 1,00,000 sq m. of land is ₹ 8000
