homeschool help

okay peeps, get your math hats on. kid and i disagree with the book's
answer to this problem.
you have a lightpost 6 meters high and a dude 2 meters tall is
standing 10 meters from the post. how long is his shadow?
kid and i figured that due to the slope his shadow should be 5 meters
long. book says 10. what do you all think? and why?

The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all of your time.
