**Anonymous**, Monday, November 5, 2012 at 7:43pmYou use the concept of similar triangles. since 5 feet and 4 inches is awkward, you convert everything into inches.

if a 64 inch woman casts a 72 inch shadow,

if a 80 inch man casts a x inch shadow.

You find the proportion between the man and the woman: 80/64. and multiply that number with 72 to get x.

Then convert to feet.
