    Trapezoid Question Regarding Congruent Segments

    In trapezoid ABCD, AD is parallel to BC. Points P, R, and M cut AB into four congruent segments; points Q, S, and N cut CD into four congruent segments. If AD=12 and BC=18, then AD+PQ+RS+MN+BC=? Can somebody help me with this question? Thank you!

    Triangle Question Regarding Altitude and Segment Lengths

    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.

    Scaling a vector to a known length

    I did a bunch of browsing around online, and couldn't find the solution to a problem I'm looking to solve involving vectors. So, I figured I'd check around here. I'm a Computer Science major, but my university didn't have me take linear algebra, so this problem I've found has me stumped. Here...

    Equally separated Arc Length

    Hi guys, Say we have a smooth continuous real single variable function f(x) defined on a closed finite interval [a,b]. Lets say the Arc Length on that interval is L, then if I want to partition L into n equal segments (i.e. of length L/n) and solve for the values of x that correspond to said...

    Measuring the length of the sides of a triangle type problem?

    I can't figure this out for the life of me(Crying). King Kong stands on the edge of the roof of a 62 foot high building. You poke your head out of a manhole and measure the angles of elevation to the top of King Kong's head and to his feet as 60 degrees and 59 degrees respectively.

    Finding the arc length problem

    please see attached file The problem states OA = 4, measure angle AOD = 160 degrees and measure of arc DC = 88 degrees. What is the arc length of BC? The answer given is 8/15 * pi I found the arc length to be 88 degrees which I don't believe matches the answer. Can someone help?
