13. triciaal

the answer will be the difference between (BC+ CD) and BD

14. triciaal

we know BD is less but distance is always positive use the absolute value

cos 60 = 150/(BD)

think correct difference could be rounding errors no explanation with your diagram!! possible the person used similar figures my approach seem long but do you understand what I did? BD - (CD + BC) but I had to calculate CD and BD

wow ok I the video I saw showed me different. -.-

25. triciaal

what did the video show?
