What will be the cost of gardening 1 meter boundary around a rectangular plot having perimeter of 340 meters at the rate of Rs. 10 per square meter ?

A. 3410

B. 3420

C. 3430

D. 3440

Correct Answer :

D. 3440

In this question, we are having perimeter.
We know Perimeter = 2(l+b), right
2(l+b) = 340
As we have to make 1 meter boundary around this, so
Area of boundary = ((l+2)+(b+2)-lb)
= 2(l+b)+4 = 340+4 = 344
So required cost will be = 344 * 10 = 3440
