Please help! I have this worksheet due tomorrow and I don't want answers but I don't know what to do. I tried using right triangles but there aren't any I know enough about. I'll attach a drawing of the problem in the thread. Thanks!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The 11 refers to \[LT\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The missing lengths sorry I should have said that xD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1PT, PN, LR, and RT (the lengths of all these segments)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Okay what lengths are you given ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1They're labelled in the diagram

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3diagram is a bit confusing, can you write down the given lengths

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But here LM=7 MN=8 TN=10 PR=3 RM=6 LT=11

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3you may use "intersecting chords theorem" to find RT

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3what do you get for RT ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I got you man thanks so much!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now what about PT, can I do the same thing for that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3how do you know its not LR = 2 RT = 9 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because the two larger ones are always on the same side of the intersection

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh but it could be the other way too.. oh actually that's weird

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A triangle with side lengths 6, 7, and 2 is impossible right? wait not that's totally possible Agh I'm confused

trantom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh because LR goes past the center and RT doesn't start until after that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3maybe lets find PT first

trantom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You could use a lot of trig to get angle LRM, then use its vertical angle PRT to find PT

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3there is an easy formula

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3simply use this dw:1433115780042:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so... 15x8=10(x10) and x10 is PT

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3shouldnt it be 15x8=10(x\(\color{red}{+}\)10) ?

trantom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if you want x to be pt then yes, but I was having x10 be pt anyway I got pt=12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3you should be getting PT=2 http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=solve%208(8%2B7)%20%3D%2010(10%2Bx)&t=crmtb01

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1where did you get x+8 from? there's no 8 there

trantom

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1shouldn't it be 15*8 = 10(x+10)

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3sry it was a typo yeah it is `15*8 = 10(x+10)`

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and the reason why LR=9 and RT=2 instead of LR=2 and RT=9 is because a triangle with side lengths 2, 3, and 9 is impossible!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Thank you so much I've been getting B+'s and A's on a couple tests lately I need to get back to being an A student xD
