The shape of the well will be cylindrical.

Depth (h) of well = 20 m

Radius (r) of circular end of well =7/2 m

Area of platform = Length × Breadth = 22 × 14 m2 

Let height of the platform = H

Volume of soil dug from the well will be equal to the volume of soil scattered on the platform.

Volume of soil from well = Volume of soil used to make such platform

Therefore, the height of such platform will be 2.5 m.
