When Esteban looks at the puddle, he sees a reflection of the top of the palm tree.  How tall is the palm tree?

They are similar triangles. We can take the ratios of the sides to find the height of the palm tree.

10/2.5 = 4, which means each side is 4 times larger 

1.5 * 4 = 6 m, which is your answer :)
