#### Question

A 20 m deep well with diameter 7 m is dug and the earth from digging is evenly spread out to form a platform 22 m by 14 m. Find the height of the platform. [Use Π = 22/7]

#### Solution

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 m^{2}

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

Πxr^{2}xh = Area of platform x Height of Platform

`Πxx(7/2)^2 xx 20 = 22xx14xxH`

`∴ H = 22/7xx 49/4xx20/(22xx14)= 5/2 m = 2.5 m`

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