Charlene made the sketch below in order to find the height x of a pole. She positioned a mirror on the ground so that she could see the reflection of the top of the pole. Her height, her distance from the mirror, and her line of sight to the mirror determine the smaller triangle. The pole’s height, its distance from the mirror, and the distance from the top of the pole to the mirror form a larger similar triangle. Find the height of the pole to the nearest tenth.
The expert has done an excellent job and you have been amazing to put up with a nuisance such as myself. I am sorry for being so demanding but I am truly appreciative of all that you do. Many thanks and I hope to use your services in the future once more!
