# A tent consists of a frustum of a cone capped by a cone. If radii of the ends of the frustum be 13 m and 7 m, the height of frustum be 8 m and the slant height of the conical cap be 12 m, find the canvas required for the tent.

If you open math book you will find a lot of mathematical
questions butyou should have solve this question.
It is from class 10 rd sharma chapter 16 mensuration .

In this question we have to find the canvas required for
the tent given that a tent consists of a frustum of a
cone capped by a cone. If radii of the ends of the frustum
be 13 m and 7 m, the height of frustum be 8 m and the slant
height of the conical cap be 12 m.

1. Given,

Height of frustum (h) = 8 m

Radii of the frustum cone are 13 cm and 7 cm

So, r1 = 13 cm and r2 = 7 cm

Let â€˜Lâ€™ be slant height of the frustum cone

Then, we know that

Curved surface area of the frustum (s1) = Ï€(r1 + r2) Ã— L = Ï€(13 + 7) Ã— 10 = 200 Ï€ m2

Then, given slant height of conical cap = 12 m

Base radius of upper cap cone = 7 m

So, the curved surface area of upper cap cone (s2) = Ï€rl = Ï€ Ã— 7 Ã— 12 = 264 m2

Thus, the total canvas required for tent (S) = s1 + s2

S = 200Ï€ + 264 = 892.57 m2

Therefore, the canvas required for the tent is 892.57 m2.
