 Question 392725: I am not positive that this is a Trigonometry problem, but I have looked through all of the other subjects and I do not know which one it would fit under, I was thinking maybe something with geometry but I am not sure. If you cannot help me with this problem, I understand. If you know what category it fits under and could let me know, that would be great! This is the problem I am stuck on: A trapezoid with bases 12 and 20 is inscribed in a semi-circle. Find the length of each leg. I have looked at it for a while and just cannot seem to get anywhere. I know you will probably have to draw a diagonal to find the answers but you do not know any angle measurements or anything else about the semi-circle or trapezoid so I do not even know where to begin. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I thank you so much! If it helps at all, I am in a 10th grade honors class. Thanks again(: Click here to see answer by Alan3354(31538)
