# Dimensions of a painting are 60 cm × 38 cm. Find the area of the wooden frame of width 6 cm around the painting as shown in Fig. 9.62.

**Solution:**

Given, the dimensions of a painting are 60 cm × 38 cm.

We have to find the area of the wooden frame of width 6 cm around the painting.

__Area__ of the painting = 60 × 38

= 2280 cm²

Considering painting with wooden frame,

Length = 60 + 6 + 6

= 60 + 12

= 72 cm

Breadth = 38 + 6 + 6

= 38 + 12

= 50 cm

Area of the painting including wooden frame = 72(50)

= 3600 cm²

Area of wooden frame = Area of the painting including wooden frame - Area of the painting

= 3600 - 2280

= 1320 cm²

Therefore, the area of the wooden frame is 1320 cm².
