Height of the well = h m = 20 m
Diameter of the well = d m =7 m
Radius of the well = r m = 3.5 m
Volume of the well = πr2h = 22(3.5)2(20 ) m3= 770 m3
​                                                  7
Volume of the well = Volume of the rectangular plot
Length of the rectangular plot = 22 m
Breadth of the rectangular plot =14 m
Volume of the rectangular plot = 770 m3 = (Length x Breadth x Height) of the rectangular plot \[\text{ Height }= \frac{770}{22 \times 14} = 2 . 5 m\]
Thus, the height of the platform is 2.5 m.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
