Answer :

Given that Canal is 12m wide which implies a distance between the two parallel sides is 12m.

Also, one side equals 8m. let other side be k.

Area of Trapezium = 84m^{2}

84 = **×(sum of parallel sides)×(distance between them)**

84 =

⇒

⇒ 8 + k = 14

⇒ k = 14 – 8

⇒ k = 6 cm.

∴ Depth = 6 cm.
