    Work out the area of each of the distinct figures in the image I attached.

    Then when you have the total area, multiply it by the depth which is 3.5 metres.

    Hello,

    Divide the surface into 3..

    The general formula for such volumes is : Area \times height

    The height is alwas 3.5. For the area, you can easily calculate it..
