Default How to fix hole in floor?

I took off my floor board in my kitchen and I uncovered a big hole/
crack in the middle of kitchen floor. They are a couple poles in the
floor part on the concrete flooring. Is this something to worry about?
How can I fix the hole in the floor? Will cement be appropriate? If so
what type of cement is appropriate for a floor? What the procedure for
fixing the problem.?


Additional Details


1) Is it a concrete floor that you are worried about? Yes partially.

2) Is it a hole or a crack? A hole

3) Is the kitchen on a ground floor with a solid floor underneath or
on a higher floor with rooms underneath? The kitchen is on a ground
floor with a solid floor underneath.

If the hole's an inch or more across & deep, a 3:1 sand:cement
mix should fill it fine. Much smaller hole and the mix may break up.
