    Set u a ratio of height over shadow:

    Lance = 5 feet tall / 8 foot shadow

    Tree = X feet tall / 32 foot shadow.

    Set the ratios equal to each other and solve for X:

    5/8 = x/32

    Cross multiply:

    8x = 160

    Divide both sides by 8:

    x = 160/8

    x = 20

    The tree is 20 feet tall.
