If a 42.9 foot tall flagpole casts a 253.1 foot long Shadow then how long is a shadow that 6.2 foot tall woman casts

1 Answer

  • The women's shadow would be 36.6ft. long. 
    You have to set up a proportion   42.9             6.2
                                                           ---------   =   ------------ 
                                                            253.1               X
    Then you cross multiply (6.2*253.1) and divide (1569.22/42.9) equals 36.6
