It's a homework lol

3. Hero

I solved it

4. Hero

1. First find the midpoints of the diagonals. So let their intersection point be O, then find the length of AO and BO

5. Hero

2. The diagonals of a rhombus intersect at 90 degree angles, so use Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of AB

6. brinazarski

How do you find the length of AO and BO?

7. Hero

AO and BO represent half the lengths of their respective diagonals.

8. Hero

AO is half the length of AC BO is half the length of BD

9. Falkqwer

so 8 and 15

10. brinazarski

Okay

11. Hero

3. Draw the line segment PQ 4. Assume P and Q are the midpoints of AO and BO 5. Find PO and QO. 6. Use Pythagorean Theorem once more to find PQ.

12. brinazarski

13. brinazarski

or 15

14. brinazarski

WAIT

15. Hero

It's not 15

16. brinazarski

sorry

17. brinazarski

i was adding 75 and 150 from multiplying 15 by itself lol

18. brinazarski

19. brinazarski

or 17

20. Hero

Yes, good

21. brinazarski

PQ = 8.5

22. brinazarski

So.. is that it? Is the answer E then?

23. Hero

Great job bro

24. brinazarski

Awesome! Thanks so much! :)
