Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Triangles ABC and BCD are right triangles. If AB = 6, AC = 10, and CD = 15, a) find BC. b) find BD.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can use the Pythagorean Theorem (a^2+b^2=c^2) C is always the biggest sid and A and B are the other two parts of the triangle (it doesnt matter which is which) c=AC=10 and AB = either a or b (again doesn't matter). so now you have a^2+6^2=10^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to do that you have to salve it all for what you can so you get a^2+36=100 now subtract 36 from both sides and you get a^2=64 Now you have to squareroot the both sides to get rid of the ^2 and you get a=8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now that you have BC and you fine out BD with the same process a^2+8^2=15^2. you then simplify and get a^2+64=225

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0subtract 64 from both sides and get a^2=161 the you square root it and get a=12.7=BD
