 # NCERT Exemplar Solutions Class 7 Mathematics Solutions for Fractions and Decimals - Exercise in Chapter 2 - Fractions and Decimals

A floor is 4.5 m long and 3.6 m wide. A 6 cm square tile costs 23.25. What will be the cost to cover the floor with these tiles?

Length of the floor = 4.5 m

= (4.5 × 100) cm = 450 cm

Width of the floor= (3.6 × 100) cm = 360 cm

∴ Area of the floor – (450 × 360) cm2 = 162000 cm²

Side of a square tile = 6 cm

∴ Area of one square tile = (6 × 6) cm2 = 36 cm²

Number of tiles reqnuired to cover the floor=\frac{\text{ Area of floor }}{\text{ Area of one tile }}=\frac{162000}{36}=4500

Now, cost of one tile = ₹ 23.25

∴ Cost of 4500 tiles =₹ (23.25 ×4500)

= ₹ 104625
