The tree is 25 feet tall. A 5 foot pole cast a 2 foot shadow. This means that the sun angle causes the shadow to be 2/5 the length of the object casting it. The tree's shadow is 10 feet tall. Multiply 10 feet by 5/2 (inverting the fraction because we're going the other way) and we get 25 feet.

The lenght of the shadow will be 12.6 ft
