The bottom of the tree is 252 ft away form the mirror. The man is looking into the mirror at 45 feet away in a diagonal line. The top of the tree is 135 feet away from the mirror. How tall is the tree? Hint: Draw a diagram First person to figure this out gets 50 points, the second gets 25 and third gets 10. Mr. Hui if you know the answer and want to tell me just send me a private message. __________________ Nothing is impossible Last edited by pineapple74; 09-25-2010 at 03:18 PM..

"There is a man who is 6 ft tall. He is 18 ft away from a mirror in which he can ??? the top of the tree. The bottom of the tree is 252 ft away form the mirror. How tall is the tree?"

This looks like an interesting problem. However, as yet unsolved. Would it be possible to put a diagram so that it is clear what is happening here as I think people can't see the wood for the trees!
