Can someone help explain this? : A crate is 1.5 in. high and casts a 2 ft shadow. At the same time, an apple tree casts an 18ft shadow. How tall is the tree?

I think you have to calculate the angle of the sun. This will be the same angle for the tree. ill draw it: |dw:1370561098957:dw|

For the crate you can calculate this angle x with the length and height. when you have the angle you can calculate the height of the tree
