Construct 8

Construct an analytical geometry problem where it is asked to find the vertices of a triangle ABC:
The vertices of this triangle are points A (1,7), B (-5,1) C (5, -11). The said problem should be used the concepts of distance from a point to a line, ratio of a division of a segment by a point, and angle between two lines.

a) find the length of all sides of a given triangle ABC

Correct answer:

a =  15.6205
b =  18.4391
c =  8.4853

Step-by-step explanation:

A=(1,7) B=(5,1) C=(5,11)  a = BC a=(CxBx)2+(CyBy)2=(5(5))2+((11)1)2=2 61=15.6205
b = AC b=(CxAx)2+(CyAy)2=(51)2+((11)7)2=2 85=18.4391
b = AB c=(BxAx)2+(ByAy)2=((5)1)2+(17)2=6 2=8.4853
