If MJ = 15, KL = 16, and ML = 20, what is MK?

Triangle MKJ is similar to triangle MKL.

 

\(\frac{MJ}{MK}= \frac{MK}{KL}\)

 

x/15 = 16/20

 

x = 12

Triangle MKL  is a right triangle......so.....

 

 MK   = sqrt  (  ML^2   - KL^2)  =  sqrt (20^2  - 16^2)  = sqrt (400 - 256)  =sqrt (144)   = 12

 

cool cool cool
