find the area of the largest rectangle that can be inscribed in an isosceles triangle of base10ft. and area 30 square ft


3 years ago


Answers : (1)


Thats 15 sq. feet (according to me)

let the length of the part of base, not included in side of Rectangle be X both side and the vertical side length be Y......


Now the rectangle has side lengths, Y and 10-2X.......

now use similar triangle property to find relation b/w Y and X

i.e. Y=6X/5

Hence area = XxY = 6X/5x(10-2X)

Use dA/dX=0 to get X=5/2

Therefore, A=15................Cool

the gcd of two positive integer is 81 and their lcm is 5103 , find the number
729 and 567 GCD=81 Therefore numbers are 81a and 81b for a and b are co-prime. LCM=81*a*b = 5103=81*63 therefore ab=63 a,b=9,7 so numbers are 81*7=567 and 81*9 =729 GCD of 15,20,35 is 5...

Use the RHS as a hint how to proceed. sinA = 2sin(A/2)cos(A/2) cosA = 2cos^2 (A/2) - 1 sinA / (1+cosA) = sin(A/2) / cos(A/2) = tan(A/2)

At any point P on the parabola y 2 – 2y – 4x + 5 =0, a tangent is drawn which meets the directrix at Q . Find the locus of R which divides QP externally in the ratio ½ : 1 .
The given parabola isy 2 - 2y – 4x + 5 = 0. This can be rewritten as (y-1)2 = 4(x-1) Its parametric coordinates are x-1 = t 2 and y -1 = 2t and hence we have P(1 +t 2 , 1 + 2t) Hence,...
