Dru is challanged by her geomtry teacher to estimate the height of the school flag pole without measuring. She decided to walk off the length of the shadow cast by the pole by successively walking the noted length of her own shadow. If Dru is 5ft 6inches tall and she estimates the flagpole shadow is 14 times as long as her own shadow, then what is the approximate height of the flag pole?
