Below is a 58-foot statue of Bahubali, in Sravanabelagola, India. Every 12 years, worshipers of the Jain religion bathe the statue with coconut milk. Suppose the milk of one coconut is just enough to cover the surface of the similar 2-foot statuette shown at right. How many coconuts would be required to cover the surface of the full-size statue?

    since every coconut can cover the 2 -foot statue , it is necessary to have 29 coconuts to basically, cover \[ 29 \times 2 = 58 \] foot statue
