Using trigonometry its height is 12 feet

28 feet

The flagpole is 26 feet, 3 inches tall. (210/8 feet = 26.25 feet)Since the ratio of height to shadow is 6/8, the flagpole is also 3/4 as tall as its shadow.6/8 (man) = x/35 (pole)6/8 (35) = x210/8 = xx = 26.25 feet

The flagpole is 24 feet tall.Assuming their shadows align exactly, they form similar triangles andh/32 = 6/8Mutiply both sides by 32h = 192/8 = 24
