A woman is 5 ft tall and her shadow is 4ft long

a nearby tree has a shadow 30 ft long. how tall is the tree?

my answer i got was; 37.5 ft is that right?

a man is standing near a totem pole. the man is 74 in tall. his shadow is 4ft long. the shadow of the totem pole is 6ft long. how tall is the totem pole?

can you help with this?

B. It's exactly analogous to the woman/tree problem. The shadow of the pole is 1.5 times as long as the man's shadow, so the pole is 1.5 times as tall as the man: 111 in.
