If a tree 24 m high casts a shadow of 15 m,

Question:

If a tree 24 m high casts a shadow of 15 m, then the height of a pole that casts a shadow of 6 m under similar conditions is 9.6 m.

Solution:

True

Height of tree = 24m

Length of shadow of tree = 15m

Let height of pole = x

Length of shadow of pole = 6m

Now,

24/15 = x/6

x = (24×6)/15

x=9.6m
