If two of a triangle's angles measure 42° and 48°, how would you classify that triangle? Write acute, obtuse, or right

QUESTION POSTED AT 26/03/2020 - 01:04 PM

Answered by admin AT 26/03/2020 - 01:04 PM

The answer is a right triangle.
I added 42 and 48 to get the sum of the angles given, so that I could then subtract that number from 180 (total number of degrees in a three sided figure)
42+48= 90
180-90= 90
The third angle measure is 90 degrees, making the triangle a right triangle.

What is the GCF of 42 and 90

GCF of 42 and 90

a simple way to find the GCF is to decompose 42 & 90 into appropriate factors:

42 = 2 x 3 x 7  & 90 = 2 x 3² x 5

What is the GCF of the above: It's the product of COMMON FACTORS raised at the smallest power:

COMMON FACTOR are 2 x 3 (these are the COMMON raised to the smallest power. Notice I disregarded 3²) so the GCF = 2 x 3 = 6

If the measure of angle 4 is 132°, what is the measure of angle 7?

Angles 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11 are corresponding while angles 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 are corresponding
angles 8 and 7 are supplementary
since 4 and 8 are corresponding, angle 4 is 132° so angle 8 would also be 132°
180-132=48

angle 7 would be 48

Joseph received a $20 gift card for downloading music. Each downloaded song costs $1.29. Explain how to write and solve an inequality that can be used to determine the number of songs that he can purchase. Interpret the solution.

Let x be the number of songs downloaded.
Each song is $1.29; the total cost would be found by multiplying the cost by the number of songs, or 1.29x.
This cannot be more than 20, so we set this less than or equal to 20:
1.29x ≤ 20.

To solve this, we divide both sides by 1.29:
 \frac{1.29x}{1.29}  ≤  \frac{20}{1.29} ;
x ≤15.5.

We cannot download half of a song, so we round this down to 15 (although the number rounds up mathematically, he would not have enough money to download 16 songs). This means he can download at most 15 songs.

The lengths of three sides of a triangle are given. Determine whether each triangle is a right triangle. 1. 14 m, 5 m, 4 m 2. 3 in., 4 in., 5 in. Are these right triangles?

In a right triangle, the hypotenuse is always the longest side.  Plus, the hypotenuse squared has to equal the sum of the squares of the other 2 sides.  For the first "triangle" above: does 14 ^{2} =5 ^{2} +4 ^{2} ?  Let's check.  196 = 25 + 16 so does 196 = 41?  Obviously not.  So that is not a right triangle.  Let's check the second one the same way.  Does 5 ^{2} =3 ^{2} +4 ^{2} ?  25 = 9 + 16.  Does 25 = 25?  Of course it does!  So 1 is not a right triangle, but 2 is!

Scarlett is trying to find the height of a dam. She stands 90 meters away from the dam and records the angle of elevation to the top of the dam to be 26º. Scarlett's height is 1.65 meters, so the height of the dam is meters.

Answer:

Height of the dam is 45.45 meters.

Step-by-step explanation:

From the attached figure, AB is the height of dam NM is Scarlett's height. We have to find the height of the dam. NM = CB = 1.65 m

Using trigonometric equations as:

tan(26)=\dfrac{AC}{NC}

tan(26)=\dfrac{AC}{90}

AC=tan(26)\times 90

AC = 43.8 m

So, the height of the dam is AC + CB = 43.8 m + 1.65 m = 45.45 m

Hence, the height of the dam is 45.45 meter.

Triangle ABD is similar to triangle ACD. AB = 10, BC = 12, BE = 4, and CD = y. Find y.

There is a mistake in your writing
:The similar triangles should be ABE (& not ABD as you stated) & ACD

If so, we can write the following proportion:

AB/AC = BE/CD.
We know that AB =10, BE=4, AC= 10 + BC (BC =12, Given), so AC =22
Plug into the above: 10/22 =4/y===> y= (22 x 4)/10===> y =44/5 =8.8

Skylar is designing a flashlight that uses a parabolic reflecting mirror and a light source. The shape of the mirror can be modeled by (y+5)^2=12(x+2), where x and y are measured in inches. What is the focus of the flashlight?

Answer: The focus of the flashlight= (1,-5)


Step-by-step explanation:

Given: Skylar is designing a flashlight that uses a parabolic reflecting mirror and a light source.

The shape of the mirror can be modeled by

(y+5)^2=12(x+2)

We know that the standard form for the equation of parabola is (y-k)^2=4p(x-h), where focus = (h+p,k)

Rewrite the given equation in the standard form , we get

(y-(-5))^2=4(3)(x-(-2))

Therefore, focus of the flashlight=(-2+3,-5)=(1,-5)

Joel is laying pipe for a sprinkler system before he plants his lawn. The lawn is a rectangle, 15 feet long and 8 feet wide. He needs to lay a piece of pipe that will run along the diagonal of the lawn. It will divide the area of the lawn into two right triangles. What will be the length of the pipe? A. 120 feet B. 17 feet C. 23 feet D. 289 feet

Answer: B is the right answer. Diameter of the given rectangular lawn=17 feet.


Step-by-step explanation:

Given: A rectangular lawn 15 feet long and 8 feet wide.

To find the diagonal of lawn such that it will divide the area of the lawn into two right triangles. [i.e. diagonal will be the hypotenuse]

So by Pythagoras theorem of right triangles,

hypotenuse^2=perpendicular^2+base^2\\\Rightarrow\ diagonal^2=length^2+width^2\\\text{substitute the values of length and width,we get}\\\Rightarrow\ diagonal^2=15^2+8^2=225+64=289\\\Rightarrow\ diagonal=\sqrt{289}= \sqrt{17\times17}=17

Therefore diameter of the given rectangular lawn=17 feet.
