a flagpole casts a shadow 3 meters long . a woman near the pole cast shadow 0.75 meters long. the woman is 1.5 meters tall. how tall is the flag pole?
p/3 = 1.5/.75
p = 6
or, by inspection, the woman is twice as tall as her shadow. So is the pole.
assuming the flag post and the lady cast shadow proportionately
p<height pole>/3<shadow of pole>=<height of woman>1.5/<shadow of woman>0.75
hope this helps
