The cost of fencing a rectangular plot is $ ₹ \; 200 \; \text{per ft}$ along one side, and $ ₹ \; 100 \; \text{per ft}$ along the three other sides. If the area of the rectangular plot is $60000 \; \text{sq. ft},$ then the lowest possible cost of fencing all four sides, in $\text{INR},$ is

  1. $160000$
  2. $100000$
  3. $120000$
  4. $90000$

Let’s draw the diagram.

Let the length and breadth of the rectangle be $\text{L ft},$ and $\text{B ft}$ respectively.



Total cost $= 200\text{L} + 100\text{B} + 100\text{L} + 100\text{B} = 300\text{L} + 200\text{B} \quad \longrightarrow (1)$

Area of rectangle $= \text{L} \times \text{B} = 6000 \quad \longrightarrow (2)$

We know that, $\text{AM} \; \geq \text{GM}$

$\Rightarrow \frac{300\text{L} + 200\text{B}}{2} \geq \sqrt{300\text{L} \ast 200\text{B}}$

$\Rightarrow \frac{300\text{L} + 200\text{B}}{2} \geq \sqrt{6000 \times 60000}$

$\Rightarrow 300\text{L} + 200\text{B} \geq 2 \times 60000$

$\Rightarrow \text{Total Cost} \geq 120000$

$\therefore$ The lowest possible cost of fencing all four sides in INR is $120000.$

Correct Answer $:\text{C}$

Let $\text{ABCD}$ be a parallelogram. The lengths of the side $\text{AD}$ and the diagonal $\text{AC}$ are $10 \; \text{cm}$ and $20 \; \text{cm},$ respectively. If the angle $\angle \text{ADC}$ is equal to $30^{\circ}$ then the area of the parallelogram, in sq. cm, is $\frac{25(\sqrt{5} + \sqrt{15})}{2}$ $25 (\sqrt{5} + \sqrt{15})$ $\frac{25 (\sqrt{3} + \sqrt{15})}{2}$ $25 (\sqrt{3} + \sqrt{15})$
