At the bank of a river, by measurement,
a = 18 ft.
b = 30 ft.
c = 24 ft.
d = 14 ft.
How long is x? How long is y?
Angle > https://media.glynlyon.com/a_matgeo_2011/5/group123.gif
The answer should be to the nearest tenth or as a fraction.
x = ? ft.
y = ? ft.

well, yes but im not sure how to set up the problem with the triangles... im pretty slowminded when it comes to math..

godorovgBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
all similar triangles have angles that 180 degrees when added to together.

godorovgBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
now in the problem let's take this on triangle at time, let's start with first one

godorovgBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
let's do the first triangle, in the first triangle we a right angle which is 90 degrees, now given the info from the problem we can now solve this by thinking about sin, cos , tan here.

okay no prob. you have all you need to do this problem, notice on the choices give they refer to to the triangles listed on the picture so now what we have to is look at if we use sin,cos or tan in these cases to solve
 one year ago

DesireegbBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so should i use the sine table for this problem?
 one year ago

godorovgBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes sin would be a good choice in this case.

DesireegbBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so should i look for the tan numbers for each other numbers given
 one year ago

godorovgBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you can but in keep in mind what you are being asked for here.
 one year ago

godorovgBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
do the top first triangle only, than we will worry about the bottom within this problem
 one year ago

DesireegbBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i forgot about the angle.. that kinda looks like c = a * b
 one year ago

godorovgBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
because we similar triangle here what do we know already about this?
 one year ago

godorovgBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the c=a times b is right
