a 6 foot tall man is standing near a tree on level ground .if the man shadow 4 feet long .how many feet tall is the tree?

  • trig - incomplete -

    "near" doesn't mean anything.

    If the man is 100 ft from the tree, a 4-ft shadow means the tree is enormous.

    If the man is 2 ft from the tree, the tree is short.

  • trig -

    4 divided by 6 = 1.5
    1.5 times 18 = 27

    the answer is : 27
