Your office window is a = 45 feet high. Looking out your window, you find that the top of a statue lines up exactly with the bottom of a building that is b = 650 horizontal feet from your office. You know the statue is c = 125 feet from the building. How tall is the statue? (See the figure below. Round your answer to two decimal places.)

45 / 650 = H / 125      wher H is the statue height   ..... cross-multiply

 

125 * 45 = 650 * H       divide by  650

 

125 * 45 / 650   = H  ≈   8.65 ft
