    geometry/right angle triangles

    i looked only at diagrams 34 to 36.the answers to your questions can be readily obtained by noting that the three triangles are similar.you must in each case identify the appropiate legs which are in ratio to one another.for each problem draw two triangles which contain the sides to be ratioed. orient them so that they are obviously similar. this should help greatly.
