Right triangles

Please give answer and explanation and or steps if needed please to check my work. 1) Draw a right triangle whose sides (not the hypotenuse) have lengths of 8 and 15. Angle A is adjacent to the side of 8, and angle B is adjacent to the side with the length of 15. The tan A=? 2) For the same triangle in question 1 do f

Geometry Construction- To Construct A Congruent Triangle

Step 1. Draw an acute scalene triangle. Label the vertices A, B,C on the interior of each angle. Step 2. Construct a segment congruent to line segment AC. Label the endpoints D and E. Step3. Adjust the compass setting to the length of line segment AB. Place the compass at point D and draw a large arc above line segment D

Geometric Construction : Construct A Median Of A Triangle

Step 1. Draw a scalene triangle and label the vertices, A,B,AND C. Step 2. The side opposite vertex A is line segment BC. Find the midpoint of line segmentBC by constructing the bisector of line segmrnt BC. label the midpoint M. Step 3. Use a straightedge to draw linesegment AM. Line segment AM is the median of triang

Create Construction : Triangles, Arcs and Line Segments

Please create this construction where I can see it. You may have to use a dark marker. Also, make the drawing large. Thank you. Step 1. Draw a scalene triangle and label the vertices ,A,B and C. Step 2. Place the compass at point B and draw an arc that intersect line segment AC in two points. Label the points of inters

Finding a Distance (X) : Triangles and Circles

In the problem I am being asked to solve for the value of X. I have tried setting up right triangles and a mix of right and oblique triangles but have not been able to get the right combination. The value of A is 3.5 and the answer of X is 1.8376. The book gives the answer and we construct the problem.

Gage : Finding a Distance from a Diagram Containing Triangles and Circles

I have tried setting up this problem using right triangles but have not been able to solve it correctly. This problem is not as simple as it looks. It cannot be assumed that the bottom of the circle is tangent to a line drawn across the bottom. Solving for that one triangle is part of the solution. Theta is given as 20 degree

Sine Rule in Triangles

Q: I know the length of two sides of a triangle. I know the degree of the hypotenuse. How do I figure out the length of the base. Example: The length of two sides is 144 inches. The angle is 22.5%. How long is the base?

Area of quadrilateral

The perimeter of a building is 74'by 59'by 103'by 121'. How can the square footage of the building be calculated?

Setting Up Right Triangles

I would like to get some help setting up the right triangles so that I can solve this problem. The dimension of A is 4.75. Please see the attached file for full problem description.

Area of Parallelogram

1. Find the area of parallelogram ABCD, given that AB = BE = ED = 1, and angle ABE = 90 degrees. See attached file for full problem description.

Help with setting up problem

I would like to get assistance in setting up the attached problem so that I can solve it. The value of A is 3.65 and the book gives the answer as 2.2748. thank You

Deriving angles

Given the degrees to two angles of a triangle. A =65º, b = 40º Derive the degrees in the angle c.

Symbolic Logic : Symbolic Notation

Determine whether or not the argument below is valid. Transcribe it into symbolic notation and if it is valid, provide a derivation of the conclusion from the premises using only primitive rules of inference. The area of a triangle is the area of a three sided figure. Since triangles are three sided.

Metric space and triangle inequality.

Prove that in a metric space, if C lies between A and B and O is any other point, then OC<=OA + OB. (Hint make 3 applications of the triangle inequality) Triangle inequality: For triangle ABC AB+BC=>AC

Two triangles: The lengths of the sides opposite the angles.

In this question ABC and PQR are two triangles, and the lengths of the sides opposite the angles A,B,C P, Q, R are a,b,c,p,q,r, respectively. Choose the THREE false statements. Options. A. If angle A= angle Q and angle B= angle P. then it must follow that c b --- = -- r p B. I

The Radius of the Circumscribed circle for a triangle

The circumscribed circle is the circle passing through the three vertices of a triangle ABC. Assume the following results from geometry. The perpendicular bisectors of the sides of a triangle meet in a point O that is the center of the circumscribed circle. a) According to a theorem from geometry, the measure of the angle

Total area of a triangle

A 1 acre field in the shape of a right triangle has a post at the midpoint of each side. A sheep is tethered to each of the side of the post on the hypotenuse. The ropes are just long enough to let each animal reach the two adjacent vertices. What is the total area the two sheep have to themselves?

Geometric proof

Prove that the midpoint of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equidistant from the three vertices.

Right triangles

How do I find the third angle in a right angle triangle if I know one of the angle's is 65 deg?
