The ratios of the lengths of the pole and yarstick are the same in relation to their shadows. In other words, the ratio of length/shadow of one equals the ratio of length/shadow of the other. Use X for the height of the pole, and plug in the other three values. Make sure you are using the same size units for all three.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
