## 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

A 3-D scheme of the property can be shown below; The volume will be calculate using averages of the dimensions.

The slope between RL9.80 and RL5.20 is given by The slope between RL8.00 and RL3.50 is given by Widths to be excavated;  Average width to be excavated Average length to be excavated; Average volume to be excavated;
