Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1348501718990:dw Using pythagoras theorem for the triangle ABC \(x^2+y^2={31}^2\) Using pythagoras theorem for the triangle ABD \(x^2=5^2+z^2\)(1) Using pythagoras theorem for the triangle BDC \(y^2=z^2+{26}^2\)(2) Nw add (1) and (2). then u will get (1)+(2)=>\(x^2+y^2=5^2+z^2+z^2+{26}^2\) \({31}^2=5^2+z^2+z^2+{26}^2\) \(961=25+2z^2+676\) Find z. Can u do?
