An engineerâ€™s plan shows a canal with a trapezoidal cross section that is 8 ft deep and 14 ft across at the bottom with walls sloping outward at an angle of 45°. The canal is 620 ft long. A contractor bidding on the job estimates the cost to excavate the canal at $175/yd3. If the contractor adds 10% profit, what should the bid be?
