@Annie96 well we know that the segment x falls on one of the legs to a 45-45-90 triangle. We know that the values representing those two sides are x,x and xrt2

We know that the side length 8 falls on Xrt2 so we can set those two values equal to each other and solve. Solve this:

that will give you the X value

4sqrt(2)

yeah. Now we need to solve for Y. We know that segment Y falls on a 30-60-90 triangle. We can deduce the y=xrt 3. And we can plug in the X value in that we have already found.

So we can derive the equation |dw:1436769635919:dw|

  • anonymous
Now solve, and the answer is your Y value

y=4sqrt6
anonymous
  • anonymous
yup, now you can pick the answer that matches!
Annie96
  • Annie96
So B is the answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
x= 4rt2 y= 4rt6
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah it is!
