# In a village, a w

Given,

Diameter of the well = 10 m

Radius of the well = 5 m
Height of the well = 14 m
Width of the embankment = 5 m
Therefore radius of the embankment = 5 + 5 = 10 m
Let h be the height of the embankment,

Hence,

The volume of the embankment = volume of the well

π(R – r)2h = πr2h
(102 – 52) x h = 52 x 14
(100 – 25) x h = 25 x 14
h =

Therefore,

The height of the embankment, h = 4.67 m
