    Answer:

    34.72 feets

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Using the relation :

    Length of tree / shadow of tree = height of melody / shadow of melody

    From the details given in the question :

    Let height of tree = h

    h / 62 = 5.6 / 10

    Cross multiply

    h * 10 = 62 * 5.6

    h = 347.2 / 10

    h = 34.72 feets

    Hence, the height of tree is 34.72 feets
