Ramona wants to find the height of the giraffe statue outside the library.

i believe the two triangles are similar, because of the mirror.

so we can get this ratio. let's have g represent the giraffe's height:

\(\frac{15}{4} = \frac{g}{5}\)

\(75 = 4g\) (cross multiply)

\(g = 18.75 \)

18.75 ~ 19, so our answer is 19 feet.

hope this helped! please let me know if you have any questions :)
