In the figure, angles ABC and AST are right angles. If AC=35 then what is AS?

I don't see a figure posted, but this problem probably involves the pythagorean theorem

Thank! :)

I think this might be the question :

In the figure, angles ABC and AST are right angles. If AC = 35, AT = 11, and BT = 9, then what is AS?

AB = AT + BT = 11 + 9 = 20

Triangle AST is similar to triangle ABC

AS / AT = AB / AC

AS / 11 = 20 / 35

AS = (11 * 20 ) / 35 = 220 / 35 = 44 / 7
