Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is a multiple choice question and the options confusing me \[a. \frac{ 100 }{ 3 } \\ b. \frac{ 100 }{ 2 } \\ c. \frac{ 125 }{ 3 } \\ d. \frac{ 125 }{ 2 } \\ e. \frac{ 125 }{ 4 } \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm not sure how to do this.. we can work out the radius of the circle pi r^2 = 156 r^2 = 157/pi = 49.97 r = 7.07 so the area of triangle ACB = 0.5 * 7.07*7.07 = 25

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no sorry that is 7.07 * 7.07 = 50 for the area of the triangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1all i can say is that the area of triangle AFE is < 25 so area of BCFE is > 25 and < 50 so that rules out b and d

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the area of the square is 100 so AB = 10 and BE = 5 the height of triangle AEF looks about 3 1/3 (i'm making estimates now!)  not exact math!! so the area of AFE us about 3 1/3 * 2.5 = about 8 making the area of BCFE = 50  8 = 42

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there is probably an exact way to do it but I can't see it.
