## enya.gold Which segment of the hypotenuse is adjacent to Line AB? one year ago one year ago

Okay, we know A is the vertex, right?

If A is the vertex and B is the hypotenuse, then the adjacent angle would be E?

@enya.gold >> segment of the hypotenuse is adjacent --- We're talking segments of the hypotenuse, not angles. The hypotenuse in this case (the largest triangle) is segment BC. When the altitude (segment AE) intersects the hypotenuse, the altitude divides the hypotenuse into two pieces called segments of the hypotenuse. In this case, the segments of the hypotenuse are segments EC and EB. Of these two segments, **your task is to state which one of these two segments is adjacent to segment AB**. It's all about how the terms are defined. Which segment do you think it might be?

5. enya.gold

EB, because it shares a side?

6. Directrix

Yes, segment EB because it shares a point (vertex) with segment AB. So, your answer is correct. @enya.gold
