The stuff in red i have already been helped with, and for those that have helped me so far, thank you VERY much!
i need to get this done very very soon... i have an online class and I've asked people for help but i haven't had much luck... the instructions the class gives me doesn't even tell me what to do... can i get some help PLEASE... i have a 76 now and with these i will be able to attain a B, and thats all i want...
i have a few of these left and then my exam... so i want to do good on these...
edit... let me just say I'm not looking for answers but a point in the right direction... i don't like to cheat...
Hello,
the first equation describes 2 (two!) straight lines parallel to the y-axis. The second equation describes a circle with the centre at the origin and the radius . Plug in the value of x² of the 1rst equation into the 2nd equation. You'll get 2 solutions. That means the locus consists of 4 points:
Hello, Outragexl10!
For the first two, you need to be familiar with this theorem:
If two tangents, or a tangent and a secant, or two secants are drawn to a circle,
. . the included angle is one-half the difference of the two intercepted arcs.
Find the measure of to the nearest degree.
The theorem says: .
which simplifies to: .
Therefore: .
Given and are tangents of circle , find the measure of arc .
We see that: .
The theorem says: .
This simplifies to: .
. . which factors: .
. . and has the positive root: .
Therefore: .
You said you don't want the straight answers, so i will tell you how to do this on your own, or give you hints.
Recall the theorem.
Theorem: Opposite angles of a cyclic quadrilateral are supplementary (add up to 180 degrees or pi radians).
thus for a) we have a system of equations:
.......................(1)
........................(2)
For b), it is easy once you found x and y.
just plug in the value for y you got in part (a)
just plug in the value for x you got in part (a)
Recall the theorem,
Theorem: Angles inscribed in a semi-circle measure 90 degrees.
From that theorem, we know that we are dealing with a right angled triangle, with the right angle located at
since the angles in a triangle add up to 180 degrees, we can find x as follows.
if you simplify the above, you get a quadratic equation, i'll assume you don't have problems with quadratic equations (unless you tell me otherwise).
once you find x, just plug in it's values to find the two angles that are desired.
remember: and
Again, recall we are working with a right triangle, so we think of trig ratios and Pythagoras' theorem when we are dealing with such triangles.b.) If ST = 22, find the length of the radius to the nearest tenths place. Show all work.
Note that the radius is
we can find RT as follows:
you found in the previous question, and is given, so your only unknown is , just solve for it. when you get the answer, divide it by 2 to get the radius
Recall, Theorem: A tangent to a circle makes an angle of 90 degrees with the radius of the circle.
so
Thus you should notice two things:
(1) we are working with right-triangles (think of Pythagoras' theorem and trig ratios)
(2) We have SIMILAR triangles here, so the angles of are congruent to those of and the sides of are proportional to the sides of
Now we get to work.
We want HC, we should note immediately that , since BH and BD are the radii of the smaller circle so they are equal. BD is given, so
so our objective is to find BC, then we can easily find HC
Note, since we have similar triangles, BC is proportional to AC, and we can use Pythagoras' theorem to find AC.
By Pythagoras,
EC and AE are given, so finding AC is no big deal
Now, since we have similar triangles:
You found AC already, and AE and BD were given. now just solve for BC
when you get BC, subtract 6 from it to get HC
See the attached diagram.
Step 1: Draw a line from R to cut PS at a point I called V, such that
Remember from my last post, that tangents intersect with radii at 90 degrees. So
So now you see we can separate the quadrilateral into two shapes that we can find the area of easily: A rectangle and a right-triangle (think of Pythagoras' theorem and trig ratios--always! when you hear right-triangle, that's what you think about).
Also note that
since , we have that , so
Now we know two sides of the right-triangle, and two sides of the quadrilateral. The missing sides of the quadrilateral are equal to the missing side of the triangle, so let's use Pythagoras' theorem to find the missing side of the triangle:
By Pythagoras, . we know RS and SV, so finding RV is no big deal.
Now we realize that , and we have everything we need!
(area of a rectangle is length times with, area of a triangle is 1/2 * base * height)
and now we know all the unknowns, so just solve for the area
i there any particular part you don't get? do you get how i set up the system of equations? if you add the opposite angles of the quad, you get 180, that's all i did.
Ok, let me simplify a bit and maybe you will see it. the equations boil down to
..........................(1)
............................(2)
Can you continue now? Please explain which concept you don't get, so I can address it directly.
Ok, again, based on the tangent-radii theorem i mentioned several times before in this thread, we have
So we are dealing with right-triangles (think of Pythagoras' theorem and trig ratios)
see the diagram to see what we have. do you think you can figure out how to find KL based on the diagram?
Again, by the same theorem about intersecting tangents and radii, we have
thus we have a right-triangle (think of Pythagoras' theorem and trig ratios)
By Pythagoras,
but AB = AC since both have the radius of the circle for their length
so,
since AD = AC + CD, we get
expand the last set of brackets, we get:
and i think you can take it from here
