George placed a lamp on the ground and faced it toward a building. George is 6 feet tall. Write a proportion George could use to predict the height of the shadow if he is standing 10 feet away from the lamp and 30 feet away from the building. then solve the proportion for the height of the shadow..

proportions are very easy for a 7th grade girl like me,,

to do proportions u have to make this -=- then on each end of this- write ft for feet on the top - write 6ft then on the bottom of that rite 10 ft and on the other side write 30 ft after that then multipy 10 from 30 which = 300 then divide it by 6 there u go if u have any problems with that then comment and ill be with u shortly!
