1. ⇒length  = 1.5 m

⇒height = 1 m

Whenever we face quantity use Volume

so Metal sheet requirement = volume of box

i.e L x B x H = 1.5 m³

Now we have to paint the box inside and outside both so here comes area of the box inside as well as outside = 2(LB+BH+HL) – LB

AS we know that TSA of cuboid = 2(LB+BH+HL)

but here one side is open that is top rectangle so it comes 2(LB+BH+HL) – LB

L = 1.5

B = 1

H = 1

so inside area of open box = 2(1.5+1+1.5) -1.5 = 8-1.5 = 6.5 m²

outside area of open box is also 6.5 m²

so total area of box to be painted = 13 m²

Now rate of painting = Rs 150 per m²

so cost od painting of 13 m² would amount us 13*150 = Rs 1950/-
