The area of a right-angled triangle KLM with a right angle at the vertex L is 60 mm square, and its hypotenuse k is 10 mm long. Triangles KLM and RST are similar. The similarity ratio is k=2.5. Calculate the area of triangle RST. - Scale model

In a model train set, 1.38 inches represents one foot in real life. The height of One World Trade Center in New York City is 1776 feet. How tall would a scale model of the building be? Should you calculate 1776 x 1.38 or 1776 ÷ 1.38? - There

There is a stretched steel cable between the three columns. The height of the first column is 4 m, and the height of the second is 3.5 m. The distance between the first two columns is 2.5 m, and the distance between the second and third is 5 m. The heels - Shadow of tree

Miro stands under a tree and watches its shadow and shadow of the tree. Miro is 180 cm tall, and its shade is 1.5 m long. The tree's shadow is three times as long as Miro's shadow. How tall is the tree in meters? - Calculate 80741

In the camp, the children made a mock-up of the campsite. In its center was a maple, which had a height of 28 cm on the model. Calculate the height of the maple in the campsite if, in the morning, it casts a shadow 14 m long and its model has a shadow 49 - Concerning 6294

Two isosceles triangles have the same angle at the apex concerning the base. One has a 17 cm long arm and a 10 cm long base. The second has a base length of 8 cm. Determine the length of his arm. - Tower's view

From the church tower's view at the height of 65 m, the top of the house can be seen at a depth angle of alpha = 45° and its bottom at a depth angle of beta = 58°. Calculate the height of the house and its distance from the church. - TV diagonal

A diagonal TV is 0.56 m long. How big the television screen is if the aspect ratio is 16:9? - Find all

Find all right-angled triangles whose side lengths form an arithmetic sequence. - Conical bottle

When a conical bottle rests on its flat base, the water in the bottle is 8 cm from its vertex. When the same conical bottle is turned upside down, the water level is 2 cm from its base. What is the height of the bottle? - Lighthouse

Marcel (point J) lies in the grass and sees the top of the tent (point T) and, behind it, the top of the lighthouse (P). | TT '| = 1.2m, | PP '| = 36m, | JT '| = 5m. Marcel lies 15 meters away from the sea (M). Calculate the lighthouse distance from the s - Reverse Pythagorean theorem

Given are the lengths of the sides of the triangles. Decide which one is rectangular: Δ ABC: 77 dm, 85 dm, 36 dm ... Δ DEF: 55 dm, 82 dm, 61 dm ... Δ GHI: 24 mm, 25 mm, 7 mm ... Δ JKL: 32 dm, 51 dm, 82 dm ... Δ MNO: 51 dm, 45 - Right-angled 27683

Right-angled triangle XYZ is similar to triangle ABC, which has a right angle at the vertex X. The following applies a = 9 cm, x=4 cm, x =v-4 (v = height of triangle ABC). Calculate the missing side lengths of both triangles. - Two cables

On a flat plain, two columns are erected vertically upwards. One is 7 m high, and the other 4 m. Cables are stretched between the top of one column and the foot of the other column. At what height will the cables cross? Assume that the cables do not sag. - Distance of points
