1. ## Theorems about Special Segments in Triangles

I need explaining my teacher can't explain good, she keeps putting me back. And using hard methods.To the dude that answer my first question, thanks for explaining it i can understand the other sums better

Refer to the figure below to find the measure.

Given:
If CR = 3, RA = 5, and CS = 4, find SB

Refer to the figure below to find the measure.

Given:
If CR = 4, RA = 6, and RS = 10, find AB

In the figure below, the segment is parallel to one side of the triangle. Find the values of x and y .

x = y =

In the figure below, the segment is parallel to one side of the triangle. Find the values of x and y .

x = y =

Thank you. Could you explain one the segment is parallel to one side of the triangle. Find the values of x and y . Just one please.

Hi zokura,
Look at your last question.You have a small triangle 12,15,10 and alarger similar triangle some factor larger. The factor is 45/15 =3 so the sides are 36,45,20.

Hi zokura,
There was a typo in my answer. 3* 10 =30 not 20 and x = 2* 10 =20 or 30-10 = 20

Use the fact that:
$\displaystyle \frac{9}{6}=\frac{x}{8}$
