USE YOUR BRAIN

A flagpole stands perpendicular to the ground.  At noon, the flagpole casts a shadow on the ground that is 6 feet long. At the same time, a 5 foot tall woman stands next to the flagpole and
casts a shadow that is 3 feet long. The woman is also perpendicular to the ground.  Assume that the triangles created in both situations are similar. Find the relation between: (a) the height of the flagpole  and          (b)   9 feet
