1. Solution

given data

Diameter of top of container = 35 cm

Radius of top = R = 35/2 = 17.5 cm

Diameter of bottom of container = 30 cm

Radius of bottom = r = 30/2 = 15 cm

1 cm3 of oil = 1.2g of oil

Cost of 1 kg oil = Rs. 40

Height of frustum = h = 14 cm

Volume of frustum of cone = [1/3] π h(R2 + r2 + Rr)

=[ 1/3] * [22/7] * 14(17.52 + 152 + [17.5 * 15])

= [22/3] * 2 * 793.75

= 34925/3

= 11641.667

Volume of oil in container = 11641.667 cm3

11641.667 × 1.2 g = 13970.0004 g or 13.970 kg      (1000 g = 1 kg)

Cost of 13.970 kg oil = Rs. 20 x 13.970

Cost of 13.970 kg oil = Rs. 558.80

∴ Cost of 13.970 kg oil Rs. 558.80
