Suppose you want to find the height of a flagpole. You know your height.You can measure the length of the shadow of the flagpole. Your friend can measure your shadow. How can you use ratios to find the height of the flagpole? Explain.
Im pretty sure you could use the pythagorean theorem a^2 + b^2 = c^2
just plug in the numbers you have and solve for c
