Harrison = $320, Jackson = $1800


Volume of Harrison Wall = 0.35 * 11.5 * 8.1 \(m^3\)

Volume of Jackson Wall = 0.5 * 31 * 11.8 \(m^3\)

Cost of 1 \(m^3\) of concrete = $9.75

Therefore, Cost of Harrison = 0.35 * 11.5 * 8.1 * 9.75 ~ $320

Cost of Jackson = 0.5 * 31 * 11.8 * 9.75 ~ $1800.

Cost of Harrison Wall : 9.75 X 0.35 X 11.5 X 8.1 = 317.87 ~ $320
Cost of Jackson Wall : 9.75 X 0.5 X 31 X 11.8 = 1782.27 ~ $1800
