Use Shadow Reckoning TREES A tree in front of Marcel’s house has a shadow 12 feet long. Marcel’s shadow is 3 feet long. If Marcel is 5.5 feet tall, how tall is the tree? Example 1

3
**12 ● 5.5 = 3 ● h Find the cross products.**

Use Shadow Reckoning tree’s shadow tree’s height Marcel’s shadow Marcel’s height 12 ● 5.5 = 3 ● h Find the cross products. Multiply. Divide each side by 3. Simplify. Answer: The tree is 22 feet tall. Example 1

4
**Jayson casts a shadow that is 10 feet long**

Jayson casts a shadow that is 10 feet long. At the same time, a flagpole casts a shadow that is 40 feet long. If the flagpole is 20 feet tall, how tall is Jayson? A. 4.5 feet B. 5 feet C. 5.5 feet D. 6 feet A B C D Example 1

5
**Use Indirect Measurement**

SURVEYING The two triangles shown in the figure are similar. Find the distance d across the stream. Example 2

6
**Use Indirect Measurement**

Write a proportion. AB = 48, ED = d, BC = 60, and DC = 20 48 ● 20 = d ● 60 Find the cross products. Multiply. Then divide each side by 60. Simplify. Answer: The distance across the stream is 16 meters. Example 2

7
**SURVEYING The two triangles shown in the figure are similar**

SURVEYING The two triangles shown in the figure are similar. Find the distance d across the stream. A. 6 feet B. 6.5 feet C. 7 feet D. 7.5 feet A B C D Example 2
