s = distance from pole to tip of shadow.
x = distance from pole to man.
Similar triangles dictate:
15/s = 6/(sx), or
s = (5/3)x.
ds/dt = (ds/dx)*(dx/dt)
(5/3)(5 ft/s).
The tip of the shadow moves at 8.33 ft/s no matter how far he is from the pole.

Let the man is x feet away from the pole and the length of the shadow be y, Now [(156)/x] = 6/y; 3/x = 2/y; y = 2x/3, dy/dt = (2/3)(dx/dt) = (2/3)*5 = 10/3 ft/s = 3.33 ft/s. His depart from the pole is immaterial for this case.

Let distance of man’s feet from base of pole be x, so that dx/dt = 5 ft/s
Let distance of shadow tip from base of pole be s, so that shadow length
is x – s, and by similar triangles, s/15 = (s – x)/6
s = (5/3)x
ds/dt = ds/dx * dx/dt = (5/3)*5 = 25/3 ft/s
Note: We do not need “he is 30 feet from the pole” in this example,
because the ratio of speeds only depends on lamp and man's height.
For a 6 ft man with pole height h the ratio of speeds is h/(h – 6)
