Answer: (1) 750
Explanation:-
In triangle PQR,
PR2 = PQ2 + QR2
252 = 152 + 202
625 = 225 + 400
625 = 625
Therefore, the triangular field is right angle at Q.
Then, Area of the field = = PQ x RS/2
= 15 x 20/2
= 150 m2
Therefore, the cost of showing seed is Rs.5 sq. m
Thus, the cost of sowing seed for 150 m2 = 150 x 5 = Rs.750.
