What do you not understand?
I could give you the answer but I'd like to help you learn how to solve these questions so you won't need help again.
Well I don't understand how to draw the picture, the word probblems are weird to me
Ok I will draw and attach sketches step by step.
thanks so much!
gotcha what next?
So it would be 4.8/11=x/11?
Whoops I misread something! I apologize! And no it's not 4.8 because it's 8 out of 12 inches not 8 out of 10.
So what would the equation be?
Ok first you understand the the height of the tree will be similar to the height of the man?
He follows the shadow until the end of his shadow is at the same point as the end of the tree's shadow. In this process he has moved 22 feet in front of the tree.
Now, see the 2 similar triangles?
Tell me what you think the ratio of similarity should be.
Good guess but no. If you look closely, you can see that to find the bottom side measurement of the larger triangle you must add 11 feet + 22 feet.
So the tree's shadow is actually 33 feet long.
and the man's is 11 feet long.
So, in inches the similarity should be: 56/132 = x/396 Make sense?
oh okay I see!:) thanks so much!!!
I'm glad I could help :)
Don't forget to convert the answer back to feet after you've finished!
oh i totally forgot thanks!
