In the middle of a rectangular field measuring 30 m×20 m,   a well of 7 m diameter and 10 m   depth is dug. The earth so removed is evenly spread over the remaining part of the field. What is the height through which the level of the field is raised?

### Solution:

It is given that,
Measure of rectangular field =   the diameter of well (d) = 7m and depth (h) =10m.
We know that,

So, .
Since, the volume of cylinder  . Then, volume of earth dug is,

=385 ${m}^{3}$.
Since, measure of rectangular field =
Thus, the area of field is,

Area of circle  .
The area of well is,

Now, the area of the remaining field is,
= Total area of the field - Area of well

Thus, the height through which the level of the field is raised is,
[1 m = 100 cm]
Thus, the height through which the level of the field is raised is 68.56, rounded off to 68.6 cm.
Therefore, option 2 is correct.
