Q:
# A 40-foot flagpole casts a 25-foot shadow. FInd the shawdow cast by a nearby building 200 feet tall.

Accepted Solution

A:

Let s = shadow we are looking for.

40/200 = 25/s

Solve for s.

200(25) = 40s

5000 = 40s

5000/40 = s

125 = s

The answer is 125 feet.

40/200 = 25/s

Solve for s.

200(25) = 40s

5000 = 40s

5000/40 = s

125 = s

The answer is 125 feet.
