4 TIMES THE HEIGHT OF A KIWI     = 4X20 INCHES TALLER = 4X+20 4X+20 =   108     -20 =   - 20   (Subtract 20 from both sides)  4X = 88 4X/4  =88/4 X= 22 inches

Okay, so if the ostrich is 108 inches, you subtract 20 to get just 4 times the height of the kiwi. So, you divide 108-20, which is 88, by 4. This gets you your answer- 21 inches, which is a ridiculous height for a kiwi lol.
