Measure of marble tile = 10 cm × 12 cm

Size of the wall = 3 m × 4 m = 300 cm × 400 cm

So the area of marble tile = 10 cm × 12 cm = 120 cm²

Area of wall = 300 cm × 400 cm = 120000 cm²

No. of tiles required to cover the wall = Area of wall/ Area of one tile

Substituting the values

No. of tiles required to cover the wall = 120000/120 = 1000 tiles

It is given that

Cost of one tile = Rs 2

So the cost of 1000 tiles = 1000 × 2 = Rs 2000

Hence, 1000 number of tiles are required to cover the wall and the cost is Rs 2000.
