## Question 3.2

Given the following scheme;

To find height, use sine rule.

Volume of Cut Wedge;

Volume of Fill Wedge;

But hypotenuse of fill;

Therefore volume of excluded zone using sine rule;

## Question 3.6

The table below shows the calculations thereof;

Ʃ=3.074 |
Ʃ=3.061 |
DIFFERENCE |

The arithmetic check is as follows;

The calculations are therefore correct.

## Question 3.7

Point D is lower than point B with respect to the datum point. It is lower by

## Question 3.8

The field readings can be represented in a table as follows;

DIFFERENCE |

Arithmetic check was done as follows;

Therefore the calculations are done perfectly.

## Question 3.10 (4)

The fourth way of expressing gradient is per mille given by;

## Question 3.12
