a.) If R is a right angle and lines PN, FL, and TR are parallel to each other, prove GPN  GFL  GTR. b.) Use the diagram to solve this practical problem: A person who is 6 feet tall casts a shadow 32 feet long. The distance along the ground from the person (N) to the flagpole (L) is 128 feet, and the distance from the flagpole (L) to the tree (R) is 800 feet. Find the height of the flagpole (FL) an|dw:1370042637602:dw|d the height of the tree (TR), showing all calculations.

what is the symbol before R. I saw something like dofo. don't understand
Loser66
  • Loser66
and then prove....GPN ... .....GFL .... ....GTR ??? I guess prove they are similar?

i like to leave u on this note that they are similar triangles :)

@destiny35 GL = 128+32= 160 ft 2 triangles GNP and GLF are similar so \[\frac{GN}{GL}=\frac{PN}{FL}\] \[--> FL = \frac{PN}{GN}*GL\] \[PN=6; GN=32; GL=160\]replace those value into the equation above you have \[FL = \frac{6}{32}*160=30\]

to find out the height of the tree TR, you do exactly the same steps with triangles GNP and GRT. you do that, I check

Woah o.o okay, so how would that equation look ? \[TR= \frac{ GN }{GR }=\frac{ PN }{ RT} \] IS THAT RIGHT ? /.\

pick out the TR at the front, yours is right,.

How do i find out the measure of gr and rt? @Loser66
Loser66
  • Loser66
\[RT = \frac{PN}{GN}GR\]
Loser66
  • Loser66
plug the numbers in

\[RT=\frac{ 6 }{ 32 }*960?\]
Loser66
  • Loser66
yeap
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[RT=\frac{ 6 }{ 32 }*\frac{ 960 }{ 32 }=\frac{ 5760 }{ 32 }=180?\]
Loser66
  • Loser66
RT=\[\frac{ 6 }{ 32 }* 960 =\frac{ 5760 }{ 32 }=180\] compare the two, you mess it up at 960/32

O.O How we got the same answer though
Loser66
  • Loser66
you must ask yourself. with which magic of math you got it?
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait.. o.o im so lost .. is the that the answer?
Loser66
  • Loser66
ok, I checked, although you construct the wrong equation, but you calculate it wrong again by miss divided by 32( instead of 1 time) , double wrong at the same point turn to right. just lucky !!!!

hahaha... sorry for my words, don't shock, I like joking. and teasing , trust me, just for happiness, and laughing together, I don't have any negative meaning of that. if you feel offensive by that. I terribly sorry.
