In quadrilateral ABCD, it is given that \(\angle A = 120^{\circ}\), angles B and D are right angles, AB = 13, and AD = 46. Then what is AC?

What is AC?

 

Hello Guest!

 

Point A is the origin of an x-y coordinate system.

\(f(x)=-tan(\ 60^\circ)\cdot x\\ x_D=-46\cdot cos(\ 60^\circ)=-23\\ y_D=46\cdot sin(\ 60^\circ)=39.837\)

\(g(x)=tan(\ 30^\circ)\cdot (x+23)+39.837\\ x_C=13\\ g(13)=y_C=tan(\ 30^\circ)\cdot (13+23)+39.837\\ y_C=60.622\)

\(\overline{AC}=\sqrt{13^2+60.622^2}\)

\(\overline{AC}=62\)
