At a certain time of day, a 5 foot tall man has an 8 foot shadow. If a tree is 20 feet tall, what is the distance between the tree and the man?

6 years agoMake sure you answer the question you're being asked, and not an intermediate step on the way to the answer.

6 years agokekek thats awesome how u do that!

6 years agoDo you agree thats the final answer?

6 years agothe drawing of x was kinda incorrect because the question asked for the distance between the man and the tree

6 years agowhat we found was x so we need to minus 8 from x

6 years agox is correct, you just have to do x - 8 for your final answer.

6 years agooh i thought it was the fina; amswer so i aswered it, but its okay
