• SO, according to the video the giraffe is just 2 times taller than shanntanu!
Look: G = 3xS = 18ft tall
G= 18ft tall; S = 6ft tall => G = 2xS taller than S
If the G = 3xS taller than S, the answer would be = 24ft tall!
I think the wording of the question should be like :" The giraffe has 3 times the height..."
