Problem:

Given the end areas below, calculate the volumes of cut (in cubic meters) and fill between stations 0+00 and 2+50. Determine the true amount of excess cut or fill to be removed.

  • 0+00: Fill = 60
  • 0+50: Fill = 50
  • 0+75: Cut = 0, Fill = 25
  • 1+00: Cut = 10, Fill = 5
  • 1+15: Cut = 15, Fill = 0
  • 1+50: Cut = 30
