In the same location at the same time of day, two trees casts a shadow. The 60-ft tree casts a 12 ft shadow, and the other trees casts a 4 ft shadow. How tall is the other tree?

A. 20 ft
B. 18 ft
C. 52 ft
D. 76 ft

How do I solve this.. Im confused again...

• Geometry 2 - ,

Set up this proportion and cross multiply. Solve for x.

60/12 = x/4

thank you for trying to help me. but im still confused. Im not very good at math. sorry

• Geometry 2 - ,

What you're saying in this proportion is:
60 is to 12 as an unknown is to 4.

60/12 = x/4

12x = 240

Divide both sides of the equation by 12 to find the value of x.
