RE is an altitude of triangle RST. Find the measures of MN, NE, and RT.
I would appreciate it deeply if someone could help me figure out NE and RT. I already know that MN is 14, but I don't know how to find the two other segments.
the definition of altitude - a line which passes through a vertex of the triangle and is perpendicular to the opposite side.
Reflecting at the definition, if I want to imagine the altitude of a tent we would rather measure it from the ground to the top of tent. In the definition of altitude...
This problem has me stumped as I cannot find an relation to use to solve the problem. The solution had me even more confused.
In triangle ABC, altitude AH and median BM intersect inside the triangle and are equal. If <ACB = 41 degrees, find the measure of <MBC.
My teacher gave us an answer key to an assignment where we had to find the equation for the altitude, median and perpendicular bisector of a triangle. One of the triangle has vertex coordinates of M(1, 5) N(-4, -4) and O(2, -5). She writes that the slope of the altitude from vertex M to...
The length of the side is 30 and the altitude of the triangle is 40.
I can't seem to solve for x. I would know how to solve it if it were a right triangle. Then I could use the geometric mean theorem to solve it, however this is not the case. Any thoughts?
I am having a bit of trouble with this new module we started on analytical geometry. I am supposed to find the equation of the altitude drawn from a vertex, but nowhere in the book does it explain what altitude is. The information I am given is 3 x y coordinates on a Cartesian graph. Could...
Here is the question which I am trying to solve:
Triangle ABC has vertices at A (-1,4) B (8,2) C (11,-4)
1.Find the slope of side AC (I think it is -2/3)
2.Find the slope of the altitude from B to side AC
3.Find the equation in slope intercept form of the altitude from B to side AC
I appologise if this is the wrong forum. I figured triangles are trigonometry.
Are there any equilateral triangles where both h and a are integers?
I found this formula on the internet.
h = (1/2) * √3 * a
Is there any way to re-arrange it to get rid of the square root?
I'm trying to...
It's one of those problems where they give you a right triangle, and then there is an altitude, and it's usually a variable. They also give you the length of the hypotenuse. I'm not very good at describing what I mean, (sorry) but I believe it should be set up as x+9/18=8/x+9
Do you understand...
Little stumped on a problem here. Plane leaves runway climbing at 15 degrees with constant speed 250 feet per second. Find altitude after 1 minute.
What would the setup be?? (Not even sure I'm using the right identity)
sin 15 degrees = X/(250 ft/sec x60 seconds)
X = 3882.29 ft...
Okay. I'd doing this assignment and I came across a problem I absolutly know i got right but the computer says otherwise (possibly a programming error). Here it is:
In the diagram of ΔABC, m∠ACB = 90 and is an altitude. If AD = 2 and DB = 6, find AC.
It said it was...
The problem is to:
(1) Prove that \DeltaABC is the medial triangle for \DeltaA'B'C'.
(2) Prove that the perpendicular bisector of a side of \DeltaA'B'C' is an altitude for \DeltaABC.
(3) Prove that the three altitudes of any triangle are concurrent.
The given information is:
