Solution —

Length (l) of room = 5m

Breadth (b) of room = 4m

Height (h) of room = 3m

According to the question  four walls and the ceiling of the room are to be white washed.

Total area to be white washed = Area of walls + Area of ceiling of room

= 2lh+2bh+lb

= [2×5×3+2×4×3+5×4]

= (30+24+20)

= 74

Area = 74 m2

Also,

Cost of white wash per m2 area = Rs.7.50 (Given in question )

Cost of white washing 74 m2 area = Rs. (74×7.50)

= Rs. 555
