4. Explain, in words, how you could determine the height of a telegraph pole.

5. Josh and Ryan wanted to find the diameter of the Sun. They knew that the Sun
is 150 million km from Earth. Josh poked a pinhole in a piece of cardboard
while Ryan drew two lines 0.5 cm apart on a page of his exercise book. Ryan
held a metre rule above his exercise book with the zero mark just next to the
lines he drew on his book. Josh moved the cardboard with a pinhole up and
down next to the ruler and focused the Sun’s image on Ryan’s book. When the
image was focused on the lines and was exactly 0.5 cm in diameter Josh
measured the distance between the cardboard and the book. It was 49.8 cm.
Draw a diagram showing the two similar triangles and calculate the diameter
of the Sun.

6. A transparency with a square of side 6.0 cm was placed on an overhead
projector. A square of side 48 cm was produced on the screen. What was the
ratio of the area of the image to the area of the original square?

1. 12m          2. 8.4m        3. 18.4m

4. Measure the length of the shadow cast by the telegraph pole. Hold a 1 metre ruler
vertically on level ground. Use a second ruler to measure the length of the shadow
cast by the 1 metre ruler.
Height of telegraph pole =
