Triangle WXY has side lengths XY=14 and WX=8 . The tangent to the circumcircle of triangle WXY at X is drawn, and the line through W that is parallel to this tangent intersects XY at Z. Find YZ.
The answer might be 9.428560495, but I think it needs to be in fractional form.
Thank you so much!!!
This is how that inscribed triangle actually looks.
Diagram in the question is NOT to scale!!!
I'll give you the answer one more time: YZ = 9.428560495
Is this the third thread for this question ?
It would help if there were just one.
One of the other threads does contain the sorrect solution and answer (66/7).
That can be done this way: multiply decimal number by a whole number in order to get a whole number as a product.
( Hope it's understandable. English is my second language.)
9.428571429 * 5 = no
9.428571429 * 6 = no
9.428571429 * 7 = 66
Maybe there's some more "mathematical" way to do that.
