Solutions :
Area of 4 walls of a room = 2 (l + b) × h
Area of floor = l × b
Floor Area of bedroom = 15 × 12 × 2 = 360 m2
Floor Area of drawing room = 20 × 18 = 360 m2
Floor Area of Dining room = 64 m2
Floor Area of Kitchen room = 120 m2
Floor Area of Bathroom = 48 m2
So, Total = 952 m2
Remaining area = 1000 – 952 = 48 m2
Cost of carpeting = 48 × 16 = Rs. 768
 Room Area Cost 2 Bedrooms 2x(2(15+12)×15)=810×2=1620 81000 Drawing 2(20+18)×15=1140 57000 Dining 2(8+8)×15=480 24000 Kitchen 2(10+12)×15=660 23100 Bathroom 2(8+6)×15=420 14700
