There is no tree. It is you who bends in the wind. [/matrixism]

I'm assuming it was supposed to be "building" as opposed to "tree" but it was changed at the last minute.

No I don't know the answer [as it stands I don't think it can be answered] It made me laugh when I saw it and I thought it was worth sharing.

No. You didn't show how you worked it out.

At the time the measurement was done the man's shadow was 2/3 of his height...or put another way his height is 3/2 times his shadow length...

therefore the building height is 3/2 times it's shadow length...

14. Okay, the man's shadow is 2/3 his height so the buildings shadow is 2/3 54ft, 36ft. Since the tree must be behind the building which is thus obscuring its shadow, the tree must be less than 36ft tall?

15. Now I know why I was never good at exams...always read the question carefully...
