**Steve**, Wednesday, May 8, 2013 at 3:40pmdraw a diagram.

If the pole's shadow is twice as long as the Shalonda's, then it is twice as tall as she is.

In fact, its shadow is 28/8 times as long as the hers, so its height is 28/8 as big as hers.

So, that makes the pole's height 28/8 * 4 = 14 feet.

Ms Sue's equation reflects the fact that the ratio of the height to the shadow is the same for the girl and the pole.
