Given length of the hall = 36 m

Breadth of the hall = 24 m

Let h be the height of the hall.

Now, in papering the wall, we need to paper the four walls excluding the floor and roof

of the hall. So, the area of the wall which is to be papered = Area of 4 walls

= 2 h (I + b)

= 2 h (36 + 24)

= 120 hm^2

Now, area left for the door and the windows = 80 m^2

So, the area which is actually papered = (120h – 80) m^2

Cost of papering the wall = Area required for papering × Cost per meter square of

papering wall

9408 = (120 h – 80) × 8.40

1120 = 120 h – 80

1200 = 120 h

h = 10 m

Hence, the height of the wall would be 10 m.
