Jeremiah uses bamboo rods to make the frame of a tailless kite. He ties three bamboo rods together to form a right triangle PQR. He then ties another rod from P that meets RQ at a right angle. Segment PS in the figure below represents this rod and it is 4 inches long. Which of the following could be the lengths of segments QS and SR? Answer QS = 6 inches, SR = 10 inches QS = 4 inches, SR = 12 inches QS = 2 inches, SR = 2 inches QS = 2 inches, SR = 8 inches
i dont understand how to solve it
|dw:1325531780777:dw|
i have that much how douse that help solve it thow ?
RP * PQ = RQ * 4 RQ = sqrt(RP^2 - 4^2) + sqrt(PQ^ - 4^2)
but i have nither of thows lenths
yeah so i guess you need to plug in the choices and test them whether they satisfy the equation or not
