1 Main Idea/Vocabulary indirect measurement Solve problems involving similar triangles.

2 Example 1 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?

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

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

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