Amen to that!jedishrfu said:LASTLY, Please type in the question don't take the easy way and post a poor quality picture of the question.
Natasha1 said:For b I drew it and get a rectangle of 16m by 12m with both diagonals being 20m and the birds must be at the crossing of these two diagonals only that I don't know how to determine how far from each other since they are not on the diagonals of 20m but on the cables one being 25m long (from question a) and the other is 30.48m to 2d.p.
Natasha1 said:Yes, the diagonals intersection must meet half way e.g. 10 m
Thanks for typing the problem statement. In the interest of completeness, part a) reads as follows.Natasha1 said:Here it is then:
The roof of a tall building is horizontal and rectangular. Vertical masts are fixed to the corners of the roof. A straight cable runs from the top of the mast on the south-west corner to the top of the mast on the north-east corner; another runs from the top of the mast on the north-west corner of the top of the mast on the south-east corner. The lengths of the masts and edges of the roof are given in the diagram below (see picture attached)
My question is this:
b) A robin lands on one of the cables. A sparrow lands on the other cable, perching directly below the robin. How far apart are the birds?
c) A blackbird lands on one of the cables and a thrush lands on the other. The birds are the same height above the roof and the same distance from its eastern edge. How far apart are the birds?
The height (above the roof level) of the north-east mast is ...Natasha1 said:I don't understand why it is 8m...
Pythagoras 3D is a computer software that uses the Pythagorean theorem to solve three-dimensional geometry problems.
Pythagoras 3D takes in the given measurements of a three-dimensional shape and uses the Pythagorean theorem to calculate the missing measurement or solve for a specific angle.
Pythagoras 3D is designed for anyone who needs to solve three-dimensional geometry problems, such as students, teachers, engineers, and architects.
Yes, Pythagoras 3D uses the well-known and proven Pythagorean theorem to solve problems, ensuring accuracy in its calculations.
No, Pythagoras 3D is designed to solve problems that involve right triangles in three-dimensional space. It may not be able to solve problems involving other shapes or non-right triangles.
