BC and AD are equal
anonymous
  • anonymous
how
anonymous
  • anonymous
i mean BE and AC are equal
anonymous
  • anonymous
how do u know that
anonymous
  • anonymous
its fine and if these are two separate questions then part A of it that line BE is equal to line AC, part B of it is that line BC is greater than line AD because of line AD is going at a different angle to BC and thus making line AD shorter than line BC but if it were line to BE DC and line AD then they would be reversed and line AD will be slightly longer and line BE is going done a equilateral triangle meaning if you attach another triangle with the same lengths under it line AC will be equal
anonymous
  • anonymous
yea that y i said never mind on BC and AD
anonymous
  • anonymous
slightly confused so a and b are equal?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no, line AC and line BE are equal but line BC is greater than line AD
anonymous
  • anonymous
the answer says A and B are equal...
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohh, i get it know, it referring to where the line intercept and what angle they make, so in this case A is equal to B because the angles of both are 90 degrees
anonymous
  • anonymous
Man i'm so confused....... can you start from the beginning and break it down so i can understand better
anonymous
  • anonymous
read the lines, now look at where the line intercept
anonymous
  • anonymous
the question is asking if the angle the intercepted lines make are equal or uneven
anonymous
  • anonymous
no it's asking which one is greater or are they equal. But go on
anonymous
  • anonymous
they both form right angles as shown in the picture
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the angle from A and the angle from B both are right angles making them equal
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok

Use the formula for area of triangle In \[\triangle ABC\] We have consider AC as base and BE as height, we have \[A_{1}=\frac{1}{2}\times AC \times BE\] Now consider BC as base and AD as height we have \[A_{2}=\frac{1}{2} \times BC \times AD\] We are measuring area of the same triangle, so both areas should be equal \[A_{1}=A_{2} \implies \frac{1}{2} \times AC \times BE=\frac{1}{2}\times BC \times AD\] \[\implies AC \times BE=BC \times AD\]

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

because it's the same triangle they're equal no matter what? But they're asking for the product... will the measurements still be equal?

@Nishant_Garg is right!
anonymous
  • anonymous
No, what I'm saying is I've measured area of triangle ABC in 2 different ways, since I'm only measuring area of ABC, regardless of how I measure, as long as my method is correct, both area should be equal as we are only talking about the same triangle ABC

gotcha! thanks a million!!!
