The ratio between the heights of three buildings A, B, and C is . If the height of building A is 36 meters, find the heights of building B and building C.
Since the ratio among the heights of building A to building B to building C is 9 : 5 : 8, then the height of building A is 9 parts. Since the height of building A is 36 m, the value of one part = .
To find the height of buildings B and C, multiply the number of parts by the value of one part.
