Q:
# On level ground, a vertical rod 12 feet tall casts a shadow 4 feet long, and at the same time a nearby vertical flagpole casts a shadow 12 feet long. how many feet tall is the flagpole?

Accepted Solution

A:

[tex] \frac{Actual}{Shadow} [/tex] = [tex] \frac{Actual}{Shadow}[/tex]

[tex] \frac{12}{4} [/tex] = [tex] \frac{Actual₂}{12} [/tex]

Actual = 36 feet

[tex] \frac{12}{4} [/tex] = [tex] \frac{Actual₂}{12} [/tex]

Actual = 36 feet
