# Nicole wants to know the height of a snow sculpture but it is too tall to measure. Nicole measured the shadow of the snow sculpture's highest point to be 10 feet long. At the same time of day Nicole's shadow was 40 inches long. If Nicole is 5 feet tall, what is the height of the snow sculpture?

10ft=120inch

120÷40=3 times

5ft ×3 =15ft(sculpture)

The given question is:

Nicole wants to know the height of a snow sculpture but it is too tall to measure. Nicole measured the shadow of the snow sculpture's highest point to be 10 feet long. At the same time of day Nicole's shadow was 40 inches long.

And

And the height of the Nicole is 5 feet tall. Let the height of the snow sculpture be x feet.

On cross multiplication, we will get

50 = 3.33x

Dividing both sides by 3.33

x = 15 feet.

So the height of the sculpture is 15 feet.
