Other answers:

So DC equals 10
So AD equals 10
I do not know what DE equals, though

hmm
Are you trying to form a right triangle?
IF you are, one side would equal 5
So the height of the smaller triangle equals 2
do you add 10 plus 2?
You beat me to the height. nice job. But you don't add them yet.
ok
well one side is 5
another side is 10 plus 2...
|dw:1347747944748:dw|You need to find the length of x in this.
so do you use pythagorean theorem?
x in that would be square root of 29
if you use pythagorean theorem
Right. So that means that DE=\(\sqrt{29}\) and AD=10.
12 squared plus 5 squared=169
square root of 169 is 13
x=13?
Oh, yes. I was thinking of the wrong distance. That's correct.
yes!!!!!
