# 3. 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.

According to the question, the volume of soil dug will be equal to the volume of the platform created.

Thus we can write :

The volume of soil dug = Volume of platform

$\\\Rightarrow \pi r^2h\ =\ Area\times h\\\\\Rightarrow \pi \times \left ( \frac{7}{2} \right )^2\times 20\ =\ 22\times 14 \times h\\\\\Rightarrow h\ =\ \frac{5}{2}\ m$

Thus the height of the platform created is 2.5 m.
