The man is twice as high as his shadow. Therefore, the tree must also be twice as high as its shadow, which would make the tree 40 feet tall.

How tall is a flag pole that casts an 18 ft shadow at the same time that a 6 ft man casts a 4 ft shadow?

We can solve this problem using a ratio. Since a 6 foot man casts a 4 foot shadow we can write this ratio as 6:4. If we reduce this ratio we get 3:2. Now we're stating that for every 3 feet of height, the shadow cast will be 2 feet.Now we can work our problem out using a small table:3 feet of flag pole = 2 feet of shadow6 feet of flag pole = 4 feet of shadow9 feet of flag pole = 6 feet of shadow12 feet of flag pole = 8 feet of shadow15 feet of flag pole = 10 feet of shadow18 feet of flag pole = 12 feet of shadowTherefore an 18 foot flag pole will cast a 12 foot shadow at the same time that a 6 foot man casts a 4 foot shadow.
