Display case

Place a glass shelf at the height of 1m from the bottom of the display case in the cabinet. How long platter will we place at this height?

The display case is a rectangular triangle with 2 m and 2.5 m legs.

Result

x =  1.2 m

Solution:

2.5:2=(2.51):x x=(2.51) 22.5=65=1.2 m2.5:2=(2.5-1):x \ \\ x=(2.5-1) \cdot \ \dfrac{ 2 }{ 2.5 }=\dfrac{ 6 }{ 5 }=1.2 \ \text{m}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
