Answer:Total cost of polishing the floor is Rs/500.

Step-by-step explanation:The floor consists of 2000 tiles which have the shape of a rhombus.

Area of rhombus =

Where: and are the diagonals.

Given that:

= 40 cm = 0.4 m

= 25 cm = 0.25 m

Then,

Area of each tile =

=

= 0.05

Area of each tile is 0.05 .

Since there are 2000 tiles on the floor of the building, then;

Total area covered by the tiles = 0.05 x 2000

= 100

The total cost of polishing the floor = 100 x Rs/5

= Rs/500
