You know that RC = 13 cm and CQ = 13 cm

What do I do I am lost for sure
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think you just have to use some trygonometry
anonymous
  • anonymous
its geometry.

  • anonymous
You need to find RD and DQ first because RQ = RD + DQ
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[DQ=\sqrt{13^2-5^2}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
and RD = DQ
anonymous
  • anonymous
So \[RQ=2\sqrt{13^2-5^2}\]
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you but I still don't know how you broke it down
anonymous
  • anonymous
With some reasonable asumptions. that RQ is perpendicular to CD
anonymous
  • anonymous
Then you get an Isosceles triangle.
anonymous
  • anonymous
You know the value of two sides of triangle DCQ. So you can use the phytagorean theorem.

What kind of geometry is that? I'm in geometry and I don't remember that
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well I my country is it taught as Modern Geometry.
anonymous
  • anonymous
in my country*
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh dear... Modern geometry? I can barely handle the geometry I'm in. o.o I know the pathagroeum therom though!
anonymous
  • anonymous
first year geometry?
anonymous
  • anonymous
10th grade geometry. And first time taking it.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ooo where are you up to n your class?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Modern geometry is the study of triangles, and circles. Is not that difficult lady.
anonymous
  • anonymous
We're doing translations, transformations, rotations, etc. And I don't know. You either get geometry or you don't. We've learned about circles and triangles and it was hard for me to understand.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well that is far more advanced than modern geometry.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Really?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes. Maybe you know it but you don't remember.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Most likely... haha do you know how many degrees are in a square?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes I know.
anonymous
  • anonymous
What is it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
360º
anonymous
  • anonymous
Am I wrong?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh I don't know! I didn't know that's why I asked!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well you just have to remember that a squared is formed by perpendicular lines. So they form 90º on each vertex.
anonymous
  • anonymous
90º + 90º + 90º + 90º = 360º
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well then yes, you're right. Thank you for your help! :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
You're welcome.
