Expert Answer:

Let  , and

                        S       = 1 half left parenthesis a plus b plus c right parenthesis equals 1 half left parenthesis 275 plus 660 plus 715 right parenthesis equals 825
         Area of the triangle is given by
                             =
                                 =
                                 =
         Thus,                   area of field = 90750 m2
         Now,       the cost of cultivating 10000m2 = Rs. 200
          The cost of cultivating the given field = Rs.200 over 10000 cross times 90750 
                                 = Rs. 1815
