Best answer

Solution: Radius of well = 3.5 m, depth of well = 20 m

Dimensions of rectangular platform = 22 m x 14 m

Volume of earth dug out

10 surface area volume exercise solution

Area of top of platform = Area of Rectangle – Area of Circle

(because circular portion of mouth of well is open)

10 surface area volume exercise solution

Height = Volume/Area

10 surface area volume exercise solution
