Darius uses the shadow method to estimate the height of a flagpole. He finds that a 5 foot stick casts a 4 foot shadow. At the same time he finds that the flagpole casts a 20 foot shadow. Make sketch. Use Darius's measurements to estimate the height of the flagpole. Thanks guys!! :D

    h/20 = 5/4
    multiply both sides by 20
