FAN AND MEDAL!! Kathy lives directly east of the park. The football field is directly south of the park. The library sits on the line formed between Kathys home and the football field at the exact point where an altitude to the right triangle formed by her home, the park, and the football field could be drawn. The library is 9 miles from her home. The football field is 12 miles from the library.

okay, got that. how do you find the other sides in the smaller triangle
johnweldon1993
  • johnweldon1993
Okay so next *even though it doesnt look like a right triangle but thank you for not picking on my drawing lol Let me label the sides quick |dw:1432855222956:dw|

So now...notice we have 2 similar triangles |dw:1432855312068:dw| and |dw:1432855331408:dw| which again should be a right triangle

ohh okay, i didn't realize they were similar

  • johnweldon1993
So lets focus on those separately |dw:1432855390314:dw|
johnweldon1993
  • johnweldon1993
Then just plug in your values you know...and you can solve for 'x' here which is the altitude which is the distance from the park to the library
