  10. Square side
    square_analytic_geometry Calculate length of side square ABCD with vertex A[0, 0] if diagonal BD lies on line p: -4x -5 =0.
  11. Train
    sncf The train is running at speeds of 96 km/h. From the beginning of braking to full stop train run for 3.3 minutes. If the train slows the braking equally, calculate the distance of the place from the station where you need to start to brake.
  12. Parabola
    parabola_1 Find the equation of a parabola that contains the points at A[6; -5], B[14; 9], C[23; 6]. (use y = ax2+bx+c)
  13. Circumferential angle
    uhly Vertices of the triangle ΔABC lies on circle and divided it into arcs in the ratio 2:2:9. Determine the size of the angles of the triangle ΔABC.
  14. Map - climb
    Lanovka_na_skalnate_pleso On the map of High Tatras in scale 1:11000 are cable car stations in the Tatranska Lomnica and in the Skalnate Pleso with distance 354.6 mm. Altitude of this stations are 949 m and 1760 m. What is average angle of climb of this cable car track?
  15. 7 triangle
    coloured_triangle The triangle area is 26.7 cm2. Determine the side length l if appropriate height hl = 45.3 cm.
  16. Circles
    circles How many different circles is determined by 9 points at the plane, if 6 of them lie in a straight line?
  17. Euklid4
    euclid_2 Legs of a right triangle have dimensions 244 m and 246 m. Calculate the length of the hypotenuse and the height of this right triangle.
  18. Unit vector 2D
    one_1 Determine coordinates of unit vector to vector AB if A[-6; 8], B[-18; 10].
  19. Rectangle
    golden-rectangle-ratio Calculate the length of the side GN and diagonal QN of rectangle QGNH when given: |HN| = 25 cm and angle ∠ QGH = 28 degrees.
