Step-by-step explanation:Area of rectangular carpet =l×b

=10×8

=80m²

coat of laying carpet @ of Rs. 2 per meter²

=80×2

=160Rs

Answer:length of room = 10m

breadth of room = 7.5m

Area of floor =10×7.5=75m

2

width of carpet = 1.25m

Now, Area of floor = Area of carpet

10×7.5=1.25× length of carpet

length of carpet =

1.25

10×7.5

=60m

Cost per meter = 250Rs

Total cost = Length of carpet × cost per meter

=60×250

=Rs 15000
