SKYSCRAPERSJoeury wanted to measure the height of the Sears Tower in Chicago. He used a 12-foot light pole and measured its shadow at 1 p.m. The length of the shadow was 2 feet. Then he measured the length of Sears Tower’s shadow and it was 242 feet at the same time. What is the height of the Sears Tower?

Understand Make a sketch of the situation.

LIGHTHOUSESOn her tripalong the East coast, Jennie stops to look at the tallest lighthouse in the U.S. located at Cape Hatteras, North Carolina.At that particular time of day, Jennie measures her shadow to be 1 foot 6 inches in length and the length of the shadow of the lighthouse to be 53 feet6 inches. Jennie knows that her heightis 5 feet 6 inches. What is the height ofthe Cape Hatteras lighthouse to the nearest foot?

A. 196 ft B. 39 ft

C. 441 ft D. 89 ft
