While vacationing in Egypt, the Greek mathematician Thales calculated the height of the Great Pyramid. According to legend, Thales placed a pole at the tip of the pyramid’s shadow and used similar triangles to calculate its height. This involved some estimating since he was unable to measure the distance from directly beneath the height of the pyramid to the tip of the shadow. From the diagram, explain his method. Calculate the height of the pyramid from the information given in the diagram.

He would have reasoned that the height of the pyramid is in the same proportion to 250 as 6.2 is to 10.
