The architect's side view drawing of a saltboxstyle house shows a post that supports the roof ridge. The support posts is 10 ft tall. How far from the front of the house is the support post positioned? This is a triangle and this is the way or sample on how to do it: Corallary 2=x ab/ac= ac/ad
Corollary 1=y ad/cd= cd/db I was trying this to do the corollary 2: factor x/25 = 25/25x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x(25x) = 100 25x x^2 = 100 x^2  25x +100 = 0 (x20)(x5) = 0 x= 20 or 5 x must be larger than 25x according to diagram x = 20
