# If the four walls and ceiling of the branch manager's room (the height of the room is 12 metres) are to be painted at the cost of Rs. 190 per square metre, how much will be the total cost of renovation of the branch manager's room including the cost of flooring?

Total area of the room = 2[(14 x 13) + (13 x 12) + (12 x 14)] = 1012
Total cost of painting = 1012 x 190 = 192280
