A saree 5.5m long and 1.25m wide has a zari border 2.5cm broad along its length on either side. Along the width on one edge the border was 5cm wide and on

the other side the zari was 25cm wide. Find the area of the zari ?



Area of zari is 0.635 sq mt.

Area of the sari=6.875 sq mt.
After eliminating the zari border the length reduces to 5.2m from 5.5m and the width reduces to 1.2m from 1.25m.
Thus area of the inner sari=1.2*5.2=6.24 sq mt.
Therefore area of zari border=area of sari-area of inner sari=0.635 sq mt.
