Area of Path = 193.75 Square Meters

Total tiling cost for the path = Rs. 22,397.50

Step-by-step explanation:

Length of Rectangular grassy plot = 40 Meters

Breadth of Rectangular grassy plot = 35 Meters

Area of Rectangular grassy plot = l x b

= 40 x 35 = 1400 Square Meters

Width of path = 2.5 Meters

Length of Rectangular grassy plot and path = 40 + 2.5 = 42.5 Meters

Breadth of Rectangular grassy plot and path = 35 + 2.5 = 37.5 Meters

Area of Rectangular grassy plot and path together = L x B

= 42.5 x 37.5

= 1593.75 Square Meters

Area of Path = 1593.75 – 1400 Square Meters

= 193.75 Square Meters

Tiling rate per Square Meter = Rs 115.60

Total tiling cost for the path = Rs 115.60 x 193.75

= Rs. 22,397.50
