 Question 68325: Multi-Step Problem. You can use the method described below to approximate the distance across a stream without getting wet. As shown in the diagram you need a - Stand on the edge of the stream and look straight across to a point on the other edge of the stream. Adjust the visor of your cap so that its in the line with that point. - Without changing the inclination of your neck and head, turn sideways until the visor is in line with a point on your side of the stream. - Measure the distance BD between your feet and that point. QUESTIONS a.) From the description of the measuring method, what corresponding parts of the 2 triangles can you assume are congruent? b.) What theorem or postulate can be used to show that the 2 triangles are congruent? c.) Explain why the length of BD is also the distance across the stream. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57278)

 Question 69010: While you are in Washington, D.C., you visit the Washington Monument. In the scale diagram of a cross section of the monument you are given that AB= 8.4 meters, BC= 152.5 meters, ED= 17.6 meters, and CE= 5.25 meters. NOTE: The diagram (Washington Monument) is a long rectangle with a triangle place on top of the rectangle. There is a dotted lined down the middle (or bisects)of triangle and goes through the rectangle. The corner bottom right of the rectangle is A. The middle of A and the left side of the rectangle, which is not lettered, is B. The triangle is (Not lettered)DE. D being the point of the monument. The middle of Not lettered and E is C. D, C, and B are all on the dotted line. The volume of a pyramid is 1/3hB, where h is the height and B is the area of the base. If the bottom portion of the Washington Monument continued to rise at the same steepness to form a single pyramid, how tall would it be? Click here to see answer by bucky(2189)
