The shadow of the 4 foot parking meter's shadow is 6.5. The shadow of the 40 foot tall monument has to be 65 (4/6.5 = 40/x so x is 65) a2+b2=c2 402+b2=652 1600 + b2 = 4225 b2 = 2625 b = about 51.2347 feet apart

It can easily be measured by using a protractor and measuring the angle between the ground and the top of the tree. You need to know exactly how far you are from the tree. Then you can use trigonometry to calculate the height of the tree. Tan (angle in degrees) = height of tree / distance from tree

A complete binary tree is a binary tree in which every level, except possibly the last, is completely filled, and all nodes are as far left as possible.

No. Only if the ground is level and the light source is very far away and at a 45 degree angle.

There are several ways to solve such equations: (1) Write the equation in the form polynomial = 0, and solve the left part (where I wrote "polynomial"). (2) Completing the square. (3) Use the quadratic formula. Method (3) is by far the most flexible, but in special cases methods (1) and (2) are faster to solve.

As the sun is far enough away, the rays of light are effectively parallel. This produces similar triangles with the ratio of sides the same in each case. As the shadow of the post is 12 ft and the shadow of the tree is 24 ft, the sides of the triangle of the tree are double that of the post. Assuming the post is parallel to the tree, the tree's height is twice the height of the post → tree = 12 ft × 2 = 24ft high.

The question cannot be answered on two counts:first of all, how "high" the tree is would mean how far off the ground the tree is, although the question probably meant how "tall" the tree ismore importantly, the question does not mention how tall the pole is, so it is not possible to determine how tall the tree is, even assuming that both the tree and the pole are at right angles to the groundAnswerThe ratio of the height of the pole (Hp) to the length o the shadow of the pole (Lsp) is the same as the ratio of the height of the tree (Ht) to the length of the shadow of the tree (Lst).SoHp/Lps = Ht/LstSo inserting the known data:Hp/11 = Ht/38Then reorganizing:Ht = 38/11 Hp = 3.45HpThe tree is 3.45 times the height of the pole

Using Pythagoras' theorem it is 30 feet

Shadow The Hedgehog so far i know..

Shadow Lugia is a fake pokemon. You can not obtain a Shadow Lugia in any Pokemon Game (so far). Shadow Lugia is just another rumor pokemon.

closer to light source shadow is bigger when far from the light source shadow is shorter

A long shadow occurs when the light source is low in the sky, casting a shadow that extends far from the object. A short shadow occurs when the light source is high in the sky, casting a shadow that is closer to the object.

Due how close/far are from the light source

Both result in the moon's orbit around the earth. In a lunar eclipse the moon is on the far side of the earth from the bright sun, and earth's shadow passes across its surface. Earth is larger than the moon, and casts a bigger shadow on it than the moon would cast on the earth during a solar eclipse. Therefore I would have to argue that the lunar eclipse should take longer, or be slower to complete.
