What we know is that a 6 foot tall tent casts a 15 foot shadow. Lets represent that given this way: 6 = 15 So, the unknown (y), or what we want to know, is how tall the cardboard box if it has a 6 foot long shadow (noticeably the same height as the tent): y = 6 6 = 15 y = 6 (6 x 6) / 15 = y 36 / 15 = y 2.4 = y The height of the cardboard box is 2.4 feet.
