Apply ratio with S is the length of the tree shadow: S/ 20 = 7.5 / 5 => S = ...? @alainabbyboo22 Can you continue?
what is "S" supposed to be ? i don't get this ..
Shadow its same as x in ur pix
oh okay . but no , i'm unable to continue because i'm unsure of how to do this . /:
\(\frac{S}{20} = \frac{7.5}{5}\) you need to solve S
for that you need to isolate S, multiply 20 both sides
S/400 = 150/S
correct or incorrect ?
You divide it :(
\(\frac{S}{20} = \frac{7.5}{5}\) multiply 20 both sides \(20*\frac{S}{20} = 20*\frac{7.5}{5}\)
does 20 cancel on left side ?
\(\cancel{20}*\frac{S}{\cancel{20}} = 20*\frac{7.5}{5}\)
simplify right side
@alainabbyboo22 Learn to multiply, will you !
