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.
