# Meghan says "I have a puppet that is 10cm all and a second puppet that is 15cm tall. When I place them next to each other infront of a light source, the first puppets shadow is 32cm tall and the second puppet's shadow is 46.5cm tall. Is this possible?

## Explain why or why not.. It would mean the world if someone can help me. Please and Thankyou.

that the rays will be or can be considered as parallel. In such a case the heights of the objects will be proportional to length of their shadow, which is notso here as in the case of first puppet, the ratio is $\frac{32}{10} = 3.2$ and in case of second puppet, it is $\frac{46.5}{15} = 3.1$.
