The ratio of the shadow cast to the height of an object will be the same at the same time of day. For the fence post, the height of the post is 2.5 times the length of the shadow ( 5 ft / 2 ft = 2.5 ) The tree has a 10 foot shadow, so using the same ratio for the fence post: 10 ft * 2.5 = 25 feet. The tree is 25 feet tall

25 ft

I think this question is about similar shapes. To answer this divide the height of the tree, 5ft, by the shadow cast by it, 3 ft. This will give you the scale factor. To then find the answer, times the scale factor by the shawdow cast by the nearby tree, and will find your answer in ft. Hope this helped.
