given, dimensions of wall:-

length = 15m. = 1500 cm

breadth = 20cm

height = 2m. = 200 cm

volume of wall = l*b*h

                       =  1500 * 20 * 200

                          = 6000000 cubic cm

given, dimensions of a brick :-

length = 20 cm

breadth = 10 cm

height = 7.5 cm

volume of 1 brick = l * b * h

                            = 20 * 10 * 7.5

                           = 1500 cubic cm.

no. of bricks = volume of wall / volume of 1 brick

                      = 6000000 / 1500

                      = 4000 bricks

now cost of 1 brick = Rs. 2.25

∴ cost of 4000 bricks = 4000 * 2.25

                                 = Rs. 9000---------------------Ans.
