You can put this solution on YOUR website! What are the coordinates of point C such that it is the point that is a ratio of 1/5 of the distance between A(8,8) and B(7,3)

xchange in AB:: 15
ychange in AB:: 5

Coordinates of C::
x coordinate:: 8+ (1/5)(15) = 83 = 5
y coordinate:: 8 + (1/5)(5) = 8+1 = 7

Ans: (5,9)

Question 990464: 6(5+4a) < 387a
Answer by farohw(153) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website!
6(5+4a) < 387a
30  24a < 38  7a
Group like terms:
24a + 7a < 38  30
= 17a < 68
Divide both sides by 17,
17a/17 < 68/17
Since the leftside of the inequality is negative, change the direction of the sign,
a > 4

Question 989335: What is the distance between points K(9,8) and L(6,0)
Answer by jim_thompson5910(33401) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website!
Solved by pluggable solver: Distance Formula 
The first point is (x1,y1). The second point is (x2,y2)
Since the first point is (9, 8), we can say (x1, y1) = (9, 8)
So ,
Since the second point is (6, 0), we can also say (x2, y2) = (6, 0)
So ,
Put this all together to get: , , , and

Now use the distance formula to find the distance between the two points (9, 8) and (6, 0)
==========================================================
Answer:
The distance between the two points (9, 8) and (6, 0) is exactly units
The approximate distance between the two points is about 8.54400374531753 units
So again,
Exact Distance: units
Approximate Distance: units

Question 989053: the length of the base of an isosceles triangle is one third the length of the equal sides .if the perimeter of the triangle is 28 cm long .how long is the base ? thank you so much could you pls help ?
Answer by Timnewman(249) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! Hi dear,
Let k be the lenght of the base and m be the lenght of the equal sides.
From your question,
k=m/3(1)
also,
2m+k=28(2)
put 1 in 2,
2m+(m/3)=28
6m+m=84
7m=84
m=12
put m=12 in 1
k=12/3
k=4
From the above,
The lenght of the base is 4
and the equal sides is 12.
HOPE THIS HELPS?

Since S is the midpoint,
2x = 3x2
x = 2

Ans:
rs = 2x = 4
st = 3x2 = 4
rt = 8

I don't understand how to do it please help me
Found 3 solutions by josgarithmetic, mananth, stanbon: Answer by josgarithmetic(13975) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! G and H form the hypotenuse of either of two right triangles. Look at the two points on a cartesian system. The third point may be either (3,2), or alternatively (3,2). Either choice, G, and H, and either of the third point form a RIGHT TRIANGLE. You can use Pythagorean Theorem formula to find length GH.
Taking the third point as T(3,2), your triangle has legs of lengths 4 and 6; look at the placements and coordinates of the points on your cartesian system for the plotted T, G, and H. The hypotenuse GH will be .
Look in your book if you want to see a derivation of the Distance Formula. It is essentially a form of the Pythagorean Theorem.

Formula for distance:: D = sqrt[(change in x)^2+(change in y)^2]

Your Problem:

D = sqrt[(33)^2 +(22)^2]

D = sqrt[6^2 + 4^2]

D = sqrt(36+16)

D = sqrt(52)

D = sqrt(4*13)

D = 2sqrt(13)

Answer by josgarithmetic(13975) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! HOW? The five lines intersect to form a five sided figure. Find each adjascent intersection point, and use Distance Formula for each segment. Sum them. Much work but not complicated. Best is start by plotting the lines and maybe identifying the intersection points may be easier. Maybe fewer computations this way, too.

Question 985823: Angle A=3x10 and Angle B=x+40. angle A and B are corresponding angles formed by two parallel lines intersected by transversal. find x,and the measures of angles A and B
Answer by Timnewman(249) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! Hi dear,
Recall that corresponding angles are equal
Therefore,
A=B
i.e,3x10=x+40
3xx=40+10
2x=50
x=25
measure if A=3(25)10
=7510
=65
measure of B=25+40
=65
Question 985338: Three points have coordinates A(2,5),B(10,9) and C(6,2) ,line two passes through C and is perpendicular to line one.find coordinates of the point of intersection of line one and line two
Answer by Cromlix(3061) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! Hi there,
I take it that line 1 is AB.
gradient of AB = y2y1/x2x1
= 95/102 = 4/8 = 1/2
Using the line equation for AB
Using m = 1/2 and point A (2,5)
y  5 = 1/2(x  2)
y = 1/2x  1 + 5
y = 1/2x + 4
This is the equation for line AB
Line C has a gradient of 2
Lines that are perpendicular have
gradients that multiply together to give 1
m1 x m2 = 1
1/2 x m2 = 1
m2 = 2
...........
Using the line equation:
y  b = m(x  a)
Using m = 2 and pt C (6,2)
y  2 = 2(x  6)
y = 2x + 12 + 2
y = 2x + 14
This the equation of line C
Setting up simultaneous equations:
y  1/2x = 4 ....(1)
y + 2x = 14 .....(2)
Multiply (1) by 4
4y  2x = 16 .....(1)
y + 2x = 14 .....(2)
Add (1) + (2)
5y = 30
y = 6
Substitute y = 6 into:
y + 2x = 14
6 + 2x = 14
2x = 14  6
2x = 8
x = 4
{4,6} the point of intersection
of line AB and C
Hope this helps:)

Question 984302: An equilateral triangle has its centroid at origin and one side is on the line x+y=1. Find the equations of other sides.
Answer by Alan3354(47455) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! An equilateral triangle has its centroid at origin and one side is on the line x+y=1. Find the equations of other sides.

The perpendicular bisector of the given side is y = x

Then intersection of the bisector and the line x+y = 1 is at (0.5,0.5)
The distance from the centroid to the vertex on y = x is 2x the distance from the origin to the line > the vertex is at (1,1)

The slope of x+y=1 is 1 > the tangent of the angle with the xaxis = 135 degs

The angles of the 2 other sides with the xaxis are 75 degs and 195 degs.
The slope of a line = the tangent of the angle with the xaxis.

Find the eqns of the lines thru (1,1) with slopes of the atan(75) and atan(195).

= slope
> y + 1 = (2  sqrt(3))*(x + 1) ***** eqn of 1 line

= slope
> y + 1 = (2 + sqrt(3))*(x + 1) ***** eqn of the other line
