    A person who is 6 feet tall casts a shadow of 16 feet (shadow goes away from the flagpole). The distance along the ground from the person (N) to the flagpole (G) is 64 feet. The distance from the flagpole (G) to the building (D) is 400 feet. Find the height of the flagpole (FG) and the height of the building (BD).

    Is this correct? 6/16=FG/(16+64) 3/8=FG/80 FG=30 feet _______________________ 6/16=BD/(16+64+400) 3/8=BD/480 BD=180 feet
