On the Level
The Walker family likes to puzzle people with pictures of themselves standing in five holes they dug in their yard. Here are two such pictures, both taken from the same direction. Each hole has a different depth, and each family member has a different height. By studying the two pictures, can you determine how Mom, Dad, Bro, Sis, and Pup can choose holes that will make them all appear to be the same height?
