Math

I have this application that I cant figure out how to work. Please help without giving me the answer.

A tree casts a shadow that measures 5 m. At the same time, a meter stick casts a shadow that is 0.4 m long. How tall is the tree?

asked by Angela
  1. Since the meter stick's shadow is 0.4 of its actual length, then the tree's shadow must be 0.4 of its actual length.

    Let x = height of tree.

    0.4x = 5
    x = ?
