Another word problemA light pole casts a shadow 22 feet long. A 6 foot man standing 10 feet from the base of the light pole cast a shadow of 12 feet. How tall is the light pole? #2 20051217 01:48:04
Re: Another word problemThe ratio of height to shadow cast is always constant for anything. We are told that a 6ft. man casts a 12ft. shadow, so the ratio is 1:2. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal.
