Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1height of pole/length of pole's shadow = height of building/length of building's shadow let x = height of building height of pole = 6 length of pole's shadow = 10 length of building's shadow = 220 6/10 = x/220 cross multiply and solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh, I guess they're looking for the ratio, so after you find the height of the building, you would divide height of building/length of building's shadow

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so basically multiply 6*220 and then divide the answer that you get with 10, and that will equal x.
