b=2+14h  and we are told that: b+h=122, using b from above in this equation yields: 2+14h+h=122  combine like terms on the left side 2+15h=122 subtract 2 from both sides 15h=120 divide both sides by 15 h=8 ft, since b=2+14h b=2+14(8) b=2+112 b=114 So the head was 8 ft high and the body was 114 ft high.
