3. The homeless man only stole \$100 and he returned it back. While the CEO is going to prison for only 40 months after stealing \$3 billion, which he didn't return. \$100 compared to \$3 billion is a huge difference.

BONUS QUESTION:

Q: How tall is the tree on the right?
A: The average height of a 12 year old boy is about 5'2. The boy is about 3 times of a tree.
So, 5.2 x 3 = 15.6. The tree is about 15.6 ft. tall.
