- anonymous

- Mertsj

If you click good answer it gives the answerer a medal

- Mertsj

Thanks

- anonymous

did it :) good?

- radar

Do you know how to solve it now and get that answer?

- radar

I would like to know how it was solved, what relationship of a rhombic did MertsJ utilize to obtain that solution??

- radar

How did \[\sqrt{1100}\]come about?

- radar

I am trying to "reverse engineer" the answer lol

- radar

Help anyone?

- radar

Maybe I am interested in\[\sqrt{275}=5\sqrt{11}\]

- radar

That would be the value of x hmmmmm but how is that set up?

- radar

Would it be the \[x=\sqrt{25}\times \sqrt{11}\] But what relationship would result in that???

- radar

x appears to be a geometric mean between 11 and 25 but what is the relationship that says this is so?

this one ...

the 4f33f61de4b0fc0c1a0bbc09 was ust the tail end of the url :)

- amistre64

what determines kite width? is it just the way it is orientated?

- amistre64

say its got segments of ab and cd
a*b = c*d is one of those geomteric things

- amistre64

soo, 11*25 = x*x
275 = x^2
x = sqrt(275)

- amistre64

width is then:
2sqrt(275)

- radar

O.K you say a*b=c*d

- amistre64

the wolf says thats 10sqrt(11) so you can dbl check it if need be

- amistre64

lol .... a smarter person than me would have noticed:
2 sqrt(25 * 11) = 2*5*sqrt(11) i spose :)

- radar

Is c and d the segments of the horizontal diagonal?

- amistre64

yes

- amistre64

dualing secants i believe

- radar

Thanks amistre64, you have always been helpful.

- amistre64

youre welcome ;)

The answer depends on whether x is half the bisected diagonal or the entire diagonal. The way it is drawn seems to suggest x is half that diagonal, as x is placed in the right half of that diagonal and not towards the center.
Also one needs to take into account that the teacher does not wish to trip the student.
So the answer should be 5√11
