# The slant height and base diameter of a conical tomb are 25 m and 14 m respectively. Find the cost of white-washing its curved surface at the rate of ₹ 210 per 100 m^{2}.

**Solution:**

The slant height of the conical tomb is 25 m and the base diameter is 14 m.

The curved surface area of a right circular cone of base radius(r) and slant height(l) is πrl

Slant height, l = √r^{2} + h^{2}, where h is the height of the cone.

Diameter, d = 14 m

Radius, r = 14/2 m = 7 m

Slant height, l = 25 m

Curved surface area = πrl

= 22/7 × 7 m × 25 m

= 550m^{2}

Cost of the whitewashing at ₹ 210 per 100 m^{2}

= (210/100) × 550 = ₹ 1155

Thus, the cost of whitewashing the conical tomb is ₹1155.

**Video Solution:**
