Activity 1: Using Ratios (Done by Adil, Yu Tao and Jonathan)
According to visual perceptions, the three of us have derived with a flag post ratio of 1:3:9. This is because the flag pole has three segments. The shortest one, being the one at the bottom, has a height of 50.5cm. Using perspective as a form of estimation, we estimated the flag poles to be split into 3 heights of 3 times the height of the segment below it. Therefore, the ratio 1:3:9 was achieved. Taking one unit and multiplying it by the total of the number of units of the segments, a total of the height 656.5. We feel that the result was quite accurate and it does make sense in our check in terms of perspective.
