 Question 160063: Matt is 1.59 m tall and wants to find the height of a tree. He walks 21.80 m from the base of the tree along the shadow until his head is in a position where the tip of his shadow exactly overlaps the end of the tree top's shadow. He is now 5.99 m from the end of the shadows. How tall is the tree? Round to nearest hundredth. The answer should be 7.38m but I have no idea how to reach that answer.
