I don't know; I'm confused as well, where did the x come from? lol
lalaly
  • lalaly
lol i did half of the work but got to an equatoin with x in it ...

  • Mimi_x3
Well, I don't know how to do it; where the x come from? Can you give me a hint how to start?

where the 'x' come from in equation 'a'?

As to how I figured it out, I began by constructing that perpendicular line segment, and then I assumed the statement was true. I found that sin(theta-phi)=sin(angle b), and a sin(b)= that line segment I constructed. Then, sin(phi)=opp/hyp=contructed line segment/(a+something), or (a+something)sin(phi) =a sin(theta-phi) and the only value for something that makes sense is that segment.

|dw:1337941445676:dw| a sin(theta-phi)=constructed line segment -> let's call that segment length y Then, (a+x) sin(phi)=opp/hyp ->opp is segment y, and hyp would be x+a - the only definition of x that works is in my drawing. Thus, (a+x)sin(phi)=(a+x)*(opp/hyp)=(a+x)(y)/(x+a)=y and a sin(theta-phi) is also y, and so we can substitute (y)-(y)=0

@lalaly , do you at least understand my explanation?

Max I can get is \[asin(\theta)-(x+a)sin(\phi)=0\] assuming x was there |dw:1337941920722:dw|
inkyvoyd
  • inkyvoyd
@.Sam. , that's what I meant... I'm sure that that is x

First, where did sine come from? I havent done geometry in a while..
.Sam.
  • .Sam.
I've ended up with another solution \[rcos(90+\phi-\theta)-(x+r)sin(\phi)=0\]

lalaly
  • lalaly
angle TBO= 180-(180-theta+phi)=theta-phi \[\frac{(x+a)}{\sin(\theta-\phi)}=\frac{a}{\sin \phi}\]\[(x+a)\sin \phi=asin(\theta-\phi)\]
lalaly
  • lalaly
so\[asin(\theta-\phi)-(x+a)\sin \phi=0\]
lalaly
  • lalaly
i assumed that the part of TC that is outside the circle is x ... and it worked!! :D
lalaly
  • lalaly
and then i used the sin rule after finding TBO O is the center
lalaly
  • lalaly
and TO=x+a
lalaly
  • lalaly
did u get it @Mimi_x3

  • Mimi_x3
yeah; thank you!
