    If the figure part of the stature of liberty is 3 feet shorter then the hight of its pedestal base, find the hight of the figure. The entire statue is 305.

    let h = height of figure

    height of figure + height of pedestal = height of entire statue

    write an equation using symbols in place of the words ... note that the pedestal is 3 ft longer than the figure.
