# In fig. 13.12, you see the frame of a lampshade. It is to be covered with a decorative cloth. The frame has a base diameter of 20 cm and height of 30 cm. A margin of 2.5 cm is to be given for folding it over the top and bottom of the frame. Find how much cloth is required for covering the lampshade. (Assume π = 22/7) Q.10

How can i solve this tough question of class 9th ncert of Surface areas and Volumes of math of exercise 13.2    of question no.10 . Give me the best and simple way for solving this question.  In fig. 13.12, you see the frame of a lampshade. It is to be covered with a decorative cloth.

1. Say h = height of the frame of lampshade, looks like cylindrical shape

Total height is h = (2.5+30+2.5) cm = 35cm and

r = (20/2) cm = 10cm

Use curved surface area formula to find the cloth required for covering the lampshade which is 2πrh

= (2×(22/7)×10×35) cm2

= 2200 cm2

Hence, 2200 cm2 cloth is required for covering the lampshade.
