# A photograph of Billiard/Snooker table has dimensions as 1/10 th of its actual size as shown in Fig. 9.71. The portion excluding six holes each of diameter 0.5 cm needs to be polished at rate of ₹200 per m². Find the cost of polishing.

**Solution:**

Given, a photograph of a billiard/snooker table has dimensions as 1/10 th of its actual size.

The portion excluding six holes each of diameter 0.5 cm needs to be polished.

The rate of polishing is ₹200 per m².

We have to find the total cost of polishing.

Original length = 25(10) = 250 cm

Original breadth = 10(10) = 100 cm

Area of table = length × breadth

= 250(100)

= 25000 cm²

__Area of circle__ = πr²

Given, diameter = 0.5 cm

Radius = 0.5/2 = 0.25 cm

= (22/7)(0.25)²

= 22(0.0625)/7

= 0.1964 cm²

Area of 6 holes = 6(0.1964)

= 1.179 cm²

Area to be polished = area of table - area of 6 holes

= 25000 - 1.179

= 24998.82 cm²

We know, 1 m = 100 cm

Area to be polished in m² = 24998.82/10000

= 2.4999 m²

Cost of polishing 1 m² = ₹200

Cost of polishing table = 200(2.4999)

= ₹499.98

Therefore, the total cost of polishing is ₹499.98.
