    Answer: 36 feet

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let x be the height of tree

    From the question, we can see there is a directly proportional relationship.

    therefore, \frac{\text{height of Jason's eye}}{\text{distance of mirror from Jason}}=\frac{\text{height of tree}}{\text{distance of tree from mirrror}}\\\\\Rightarrow\frac{6}{7}=\frac{x}{42}\\\\\Rightarrow\ x=\frac{42\times6}{7}\\\\\Rightarrow\ x=36\ feet

    Hence, The height of the tree= 36 feet
