If triangle ABC ~ to triangle XYZ, AC = 24, AB = 15, BC = 17, and XY = 9, what is the perimeter of triangle XYZ? Round all sides to 1 decimal place. - Divide an isosceles triangle

How to divide an isosceles triangle into two parts with equal contents perpendicular to the axis of symmetry (into a trapezoid and a triangle)? - Two similar

Two similar triangles, one has a circumference of 100 cm, the second has sides successively 8 cm, 14 cm, 18 cm longer than the first. Find the lengths of its sides. - The truncated

The truncated rotating cone has bases with radii r1 = 8 cm, r2 = 4 cm and height v = 5 cm. What is the volume of the cone from which the truncated cone originated? - Two cables

On a flat plain, 2 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. - 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. - MO Z7–I–6 2021

In the triangle ABC, point D lies on the AC side and point E on the BC side. The sizes of the angles ABD, BAE, CAE and CBD are 30°, 60°, 20° and 30°, respectively. Find the size of the AED angle. - A cliff

A line from the top of a cliff to the ground passes just over the top of a pole 5 ft high and meets the ground at a point 8 ft from the base of the pole. If the point is 93 ft from the base of the cliff, how high is the cliff? - Vertical rod

The vertical one-meter-long rod casts a shadow 150 cm long. Calculate the height of a column whose shadow is 36 m long at the same time. - The straight

The straight path rises by 72 cm every 3 m of its length. How many meters will it climb to 350 m? - Poplar shadow

The nine-meter poplar casts a shadow 16.2 m long. How long does a shadow cast by Peter at the same time, if it is 1.4 m high? - Distance of points

A regular quadrilateral pyramid ABCDV is given, in which edge AB = a = 4 cm and height v = 8 cm. Let S be the center of the CV. Find the distance of points A and S. - Inclined plane

The body stays on an inclined plane and exerts a compressive force of 70N on it. Find the angle between the inclined plane and the horizontal if a gravitational force of 100N acts on the body. - Chimney and tree

Calculate the height of the factory chimney, which casts a shadow 6.5 m long in the afternoon. At the same time, a 6 m high tree standing near it casts a shadow 25 dm long. - Similar triangles
