**Steve**, Friday, April 27, 2012 at 10:38amThe 2.5 ft tree makes a 3ft shadow. That means the shadow is 1.2 times the height.

So, 1.2 * 50 = 60, and the tree's shadow is 60 ft.

Or, algebraically,

s/50 = 3/2.5

2.5s = 150

s=60

3 - x > 7. Subtract 3 from both sides: -x > 4. Multiply both sides by -1: x 7 + x, then subtract 7 from both sides: -4 > x, which means the same as x < -4
