Any help would be appreciated! ``` I don't know why you were given all that about the incenter, maybe just to get you familiar with the incenter, which is the center of the inscribed circle, and it is the point where all three angle bisectors (the green line segments, AO,BO, and CO) all intersect. But all you needed was this: with these instructions: In right triangle ABC, CD=2", AC=8"; AB=10". Find y if DB=y. (DB is a segment of CB. We use the Pythagorean theorem: So Edwin```
