1. Answer: the depth of the trench is 3685 ft

Step-by-step explanation:

The hole is approximately 347 yards wide. This means that the diameter of the hole is 347 yards.

The formula for determining the volume of a cylinder is expressed as

Volume = πr²h

Where

r represents the radius of the cylinder or hole.

h represents the height or depth of the cylinder or hole.

π is a constant whose value is 3.14

From the information given,

Volume = 348289500 ft³

Radius = diameter/2 = 347/2 = 173.5 ft

Therefore,

348289500 = 3.14 × 173.5² × h

348289500 = 94521.065h

h = 348289500/94521.065

h = 3685 feet
