all the above numbers are in inches your friends height = x inches the angle formed by the suns rays is the same for both triangles so they are similar so we can write 65 / 23 = x / 24 because corresponding sides of asimilar triangles are in the same ratio solve for x

Cross multiply 23x = 24 * 65 x = 24 * 65 ------ 23 this will give you the friends height in inches you can then convert this to feet and inches
