The ratio of the heights of stick to the umbrella is 4:5
suppose the hieght of  umbrella is 5x and the height of the stick is 4x
the height of the umbrella is 40 cm
therefore by given condition 5x=40    x=8
and therfore the height of the stick=4x=4×8=32
The sum hieghts of the umbrella and the stick =40+32=72 cm
