Answer:4000m=perimeter

fencing=2.5*4000=10000

Step-by-step explanation:Given:Tofind:[tex] \: [/tex]

Solution:As the dimensions of the football ground are differentonly.

(100mand40m, hence the ground is in rectangular shape. Therefore we’ll apply the formula for)rectangleWe have to

fencethe ground, therefore we’ll find theperimeter.[tex] \: [/tex][tex]\boxed {\mathfrak {\red {Perimeter\ of\ rectangle = 2(length\ +\ breadth)}}}[/tex]

Perimeter of ground = 2 (100+40)

Perimeter of ground = 2×140

Perimeterofground=280m[tex] \: [/tex]

Cost of fencing 1 m of ground = ₹2.50

Cost of fencing the entire ground = ₹ (280×2.50)

= ₹ 700
