Questions 23 and 24 refer to the isosceles trapezoid given below.

right, well ill just continue here.. remember the properties of an isosceles trapeszoid.

so from that you have internal angles ( x=115, y = 65, z=65

you can also draw lines straight down from E and F and work out A and B 37-21 = 16 16/2 = 8 so now point H to directly below E is 8 and point G to directly below F is 8 too

so z is 65 how can i find w?

we're getting there

oh

i think i have to find all sides of teh triangle first so can you get B?

no im really stupped :(

what if you have a right triangle, can you work out the other sides?

ummm yes

its the same triangle as the one in the isosceles ... so once you get the hypotenuse of that triangle, you have A and B in your question.

do it please, cause i dont have a calculator...

abby?

have you figured out the rest of the question?

oh sorry went to the restroom

oh sorry

i dont have a calc

doesn't mattehr, i found one online make the points directly below E and F points e and f E to e is 3.73 F to f is 3.73 A and B are 8.83 point w on E-e is half way so 3.73/2 = 1.865 now you just do the same kind of calculation but with a smaller triangle attached

so turns out the bottom of that new triangle is 4 in so w = 21+4+4 =29

Thank you so much paul

im just glad i could help ")
