The tablecover 5m x 3m is spread on a meeting table. if 25 cm of the table cover is hanging all around the table, find the area of the table top
length of table cover=5m
breadth of table cover = 3m
length of table top = length of table cover - 0.50 m (0.25 m from both sides) =5m-0.5m=4.5m
Breadth of table top=breadth of table cover - 0.50m (0.25 from both sides) =3m-0.50m=2.5m
Area of table top= length x breadth=4.5x2.5=11.25 sq.m
Length of the table cloth = 5 M.
Breadth of the table cloth = 3 M.
Since the table cloth is hanging equally aroun the table,
Then The length of the table = 5 - 0.25 - 0.25 = 4.5 M.
Breadth of the table = 3 - 0.25 - 0.25 = 2.5 M.
So the3 area of the table top = 4.5 x 2.5 = 11.25 M2.
Answer: 11.25 M2.
