|dw:1327378129785:dw| OK here it goes I have one side which is 60 the large right angle side signified by the number 60 and the x. I have a smaller triangle inside the larger triangle. The whole bottom of the triangle equals 200. The first segment is 160 signified by y. and the second segment of the bottom is 40 signified by z. What I am trying to figure out is v the right angle of the smaller triangle. Here is the calculation I used and it can't be right... \[\frac{200}{40}=\frac{v}{60} \] However when calculated I get v = 300 which can't be right.

Can't be right 60 is the larger triangles right angle... the smaller triangles right angle is v. Solving for V. It has to be smaller than 60. I figured it with basic logic and calculated it at v=12 however, I can't show the math to prove this. It's just deduction which isn't worth anything unless I can prove I understand.

v/40 = 60/200 200v = 2400 v = 12
