Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's the point at which the three altitudes of a triangle intersect. Altitudes are lines which intersect with both the vertex of a triangle and the middle of the side of the triangle opposite to that vertex, as shown in this diagram:dw:1331594454196:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, the orthocenter would appear as so in an equilateral triangle:dw:1331594531392:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2not quite sure i agree with the definition of altitude you provided... The altitude is a line drawn from one vertex of the triangle to the line containing the opposite side that is perpendicular to the line i.e. dw:1331594718807:dw.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thank you whats an isosceles triangle look like? and this is the question being asked: if <A = 94 which would be true <B = 94 or <B = 47 or AB = BC or AB = AC? Can you help

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2an isosceles triangle is a triangle with two sides exactly the same length like: dw:1331595007721:dw the question referring to an isosceles triangle?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well, if we're talking about an isosceles triangle, and we have one 94 degree angle, can we have another 94 degree angle? (Triangle interior angle sum th. may help here)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it basically says, if we add together two sides, it should always be greater than the remaining side so, for your problem, we'd use it three times for each problem. We want to go through all possible combinations of sums. mathematically, we'll denote it (for three sides a, b, and c) as a + b > c, b + c > a, and a + c > b Ex) Your first part, 1.9,3.2,4 1.9 + 3.2 > 2.4, 3.2 + 4 > 1.9, and 1.9 + 4 > 3.2 These all must come out as true statements. 5.1 > 2.4 (true), 7.2 > 1.9 (true), and 5.9 > 3.2 (true!) So, this set of lengths will work for a triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmm, that should not be 2.4, that should be 4. Sorry! It would still be true for 4, tho.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what does it mean when it says: What is the correct relationship between the angle measures of triangle PQR? answer choices are : F. m<R < m<Q < m<P G. m<R < m<P < m<Q H. m<Q < m<P < m<R J. m<P < m<Q < m<R Side lengths are: PQ= 10 cm QR= 15 cm RP= 13 cm Can anyone explain? I am confused!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2This deals with a property of triangles that says that the largest side is across from the largest angle, and similarly the smallest side is opposite the smallest angle. If you made a diagram (not to scale)... dw:1331599617470:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thanks whats an integer

AccessDenied

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2An integer is a number in the set of all whole numbers and their opposites... Like, 1, 6, 1, 5, and 0 are all integers. Integers do NOT include decimals, radicals that cannot simplify, and fractions that do not simplify.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what about seven?

AccessDenied
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yep, 7 is an integer. The counting numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, and so on), 0, and the negatives of those counting numbers (1, 2, 3, 4, and so on) would be all integers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0suppose two lines intersect in a plane to form four angles. What do you know about the pairs of adjacent angles formed? Exsplain. I know that 1=3 and 4=2 and in the picture given 1>4 and 3>2 but I dont know how to exsplain that......

AccessDenied

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I don't have the picture, but I imagine you got 1=3 and 2=4 from vertical angles... we're looking at adjacent angles, the angles next to each other...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah 1 is obtuse and so is 3

JordanBurgett

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i just dont know how to explain it

AccessDenied

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2i think, rather than observing the angles themselves, you should look at each of these pairs of angles as whole units: dw:1331601403645:dw Specifically, the sum of the adjacent angles

JordanBurgett

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so that they equal 180?

AccessDenied
 3 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yeah. The adjacent angles at the intersection of two lines add up to 180. The proper math term for this is that these angles are "supplementary"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay now i have came across a confusing one I am particually bad at story problems. Here it goes: Eric and Heather are each taking a group pf campers hiking in the woods. Eric's group leaves camp and goes 2 miles east, then turns 20 degrees south of east and goes 4 miles. Heather's group leaves camp and travels 2 miles west, then turns 30 degrees north of west and goes 4 miles. How many degrees south of east would Eric have needed to turn in order for his group and Heather's group to be the same distance from camp after the two legs of the hike?
