A simple roof truss design is shown in figure 2.10( i have attached) The lower section, VWXY is made from three equal length segments. UW and XZ are perpendicular to VT and TY, respectively. If VWXY is 20m and the height of the truss is 2.5m, determine the lengths of XT and XZ.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Ok It has been years since I have taken geometry and am looking for a little guidance. Any theorems or help to get this problem started in the right direction would be great. I do not want full solutions that would be defeating the purpose :)
