Wired Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Equilateral Triangle means all sides are equal, and all angles are equal (60). TX bisects the triangle, therefore it bisects one of the angles. You now have two triangles with angles of 306090. RT is the hypotenuse of one of those triangles, and since RT=RS=ST, (1/2)RS = the length base of the triangle. \[A^{2}+B^{2}=C^{2}\] \[\Large (TX)^{2}+4^{2}=8^{2}\] Solve for TX.
