# A wall of a room is of dimensions 5 m × 4 m. It has a window of dimensions 1.5 m × 1m and a door of dimensions 2.25 m × 1m. Find the area of the wall which is to be painted.

**Solution:**

Given, the dimensions of a wall of a room is 5 m × 4 m.

The dimensions of a window is 1.5 m × 1m

The dimensions of a door is 2.25 m × 1m

We have to find the area of the wall to be painted.

__Area of rectangle__ = length × breadth

Area of entire wall of a room = 5(4)

= 20 m²

Area of window = 1.5(1)

=1.5 m²

Area of door = 2.25(1)

= 2.25 m²

Area of wall to be painted = area of entire wall - area of window - area of door

= 20 - (1.5 + 2.25)

= 20 - 3.75

= 16.25 m²

Therefore, the area of wall to be painted is 16.25 m²
