    Post Algebra-similar triangles-year11

    Hey fellas,

    I am doing my homework and cannot quite get this question, it seems familiar but no matter how hard i try i am always assuming some vairable incorrectly
    But that is all okay because i have found this forum.
    Okay here goes...

    I inserted a picture i think

    It is an isosceles triangle with a hypotenuse of 10m, and inside the triangle there is a 1m square positioned on the right angle (bottom left corner) the squares top right hand corner touches the hypotenuse. solve for side A

    thanks

    I can't see a picture. Also, isosceles triangles do not have hypotenuses.

    To upload an image, you need to upload it to a photo sharing site such as photobucket, and then use the link in image tags - [ img ] [/ img ] (without the spaces)
