I have tried a couples times to solve this problem and each time I try a different method and get a different answer. Can someone tell me what they get when they solve? And how you did it? Thnx

**Reiny**, Friday, April 3, 2009 at 11:48pmwhat determines the "correct height" of the target?

why are all the units in metric and the height of the person's eyes in inches?

**Riley**, Saturday, April 4, 2009 at 7:08pmwell I need to know the equivalent height of the target at 4.5meteres. I am given the information for the target and everything at 50m and I suposed to figure it out for 4.5m. I have to convert all the measurements into meters to solve. I need the height of the person's eyes to help determine the height of the target at 4.5 meters. I think I need to set up some type of triangle and solve but not sure how to get the right answer.
