To find the cost of fencing a rectangular park, we need to calculate the perimeter of the park and then multiply it by the cost per meter.
Given that the length of the rectangular park is 350 m and the breadth is 250 m, we can use the formula for the perimeter of a rectangle:
Perimeter = 2 * (length + breadth)
Substituting the given values, we have:
Perimeter = 2 * (350 m + 250 m)
= 2 * 600 m
= 1200 m
Now, we know that the cost of fencing per meter is Rs. 18.50. To calculate the total cost of fencing, we multiply the perimeter by the cost per meter:
Total Cost = Perimeter * Cost per meter
= 1200 m * Rs. 18.50/m
= Rs. 22,200
Therefore, the cost of fencing the rectangular park, with a length of 350 m and breadth of 250 m, at the rate of Rs. 18.50 per meter, is Rs. 22,200.
It’s important to note that the cost of fencing may vary based on factors such as the type of fencing material used, additional features, or labor charges. The calculation provided assumes a uniform cost per meter for a basic fencing structure.
It’s always advisable to consult with fencing contractors or suppliers to get an accurate estimate for specific fencing requirements.
