A bricklayer is standing on a temporary platform suspended in a well renewing the top layer of brick. He is five and half feet in height. The well is six times as deep as this platform is below ground level. When he stood on the bottom of the well his head was five times as far below where his assistant was standing as far as his head is now above it. How deep is the well?
Please explain in detail. Thank you.
