Let as assume well is a solid right circular cylinder

Radius of cylinder (r)=3.5/2 = 1.75m

Height (or) depth of well = 16m.

Given that length of platform (l) = 27.5m

Breath of platform (b) = 7 cm 

Let height of platform be x m

Since well is spread evenly to form platform

So equating (1) and (2)
