I have solved that question see the answer
.Radius of well,r=5m
and,it's depth=8.4m
so, volume of earth dug out=pi×r^2×h
Width of embankment=7m
external radius =7+5=12m
internal radius =5m.
Area of embankment =
therefore height =(660/374)m
=1.76471 m. now,
volume of embankment =pi×h×(R^2-r^2)
=660.00137 m^3
now, since the contractor has taken height as 2m therefore volume=pi×h×(R^2-r^2)
=44×17=748 m^3.
Now, cost per m^3=500
therefore cost of 660.00137 m^3=
Also, cost of 748 m^3=748×500=374000.
Therefore extra money made by him=374000-330000.685=Rs 43999.315
