#### Solution

Given data is as follows:

r = 20cm

h = 10m

Number of pillars = 14

We have to find the total amount of concrete present in all 14 pillars.

Radius of the pillar is given in centimeters, so let us convert it to meters.

r = 20 cm = .2m

Let us first find the amount of concrete present in one pillar, which is nothing but the volume of the pillar.

"Volume of 1 pillar "  = pi r^2 h

= pi xx .2 xx.2xx10

"Volume of 14 pillars"  = 14 xx pi xx .20 xx .20 xx 10

=14 xx 22/7 xx .20xx .20 xx10

"Volume of 14 pillars " = 17.6 m^2

Therefore, total amount of concrete mixture in 14 pillars is 17.6 m.
