  1. Let us assume the well to be a solid right circular cylinder

    Radius(r) of the cylinder = 3.5/2 m = 1.75 m

    Depth of the well or height of the cylinder (h) = 16 m

    We know that,

    Volume of the cylinder (V1) = πr2h

    = π × 1.752 × 16

    Given,

    The length of the platform (l) = 27.5 m

    Breadth of the platform (b) =7 m

    Now, let the height of the platform be x m

    We know that,

    Volume of the rectangle = l*b*h

    V2 = 27.5*7*x

    As the earth dug up is spread evenly to form the platform

    Volumes of both, the well and the platform should be the same.

    V1 = V2

    π × 1.75 × 1.75 × 16 = 27.5 × 7 × x

    x = 0.8 m = 80 cm

    Therefore, the height of the platform is 80 cm.
