Thomas happened to notice that at 400 PM on his uncle's farm a fence post that was 5 feet tall cast a 3 foot shadow He also noticed that a nearby tree cast a 12 foot shadow How tall is the tree?

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.

If Blake is 5 feet tall and casting a 20 foot shadow how tall is the flagpole next to him whose shadow is 60 feet long?

The flagpole is 15 feet in height. At any given moment of the day, all of the shadows that are cast by objects will have lengths that are equally proportional to the actual height of the object. Since Blake's shadow is 20 feet long and he is actually 5 feet tall, actual heights are going to be one fourth (1/4) of the length of any shadow they cast, at that specific time of the day. 60 x (1/4) = 15 feet.
