PQ  is  parallel to  AC.....any  segment  drawn parallel to a  base  will  create similar  triangles

 

And  triangle   BPQ  is similar to triangle BAC....so....we  have  the following relationship

 

BP /PQ   =  (BP + AP)  /  AC

 

2.2  / 2.6   =  (2.2  + AP)   /    5.6     cross-multiply

 

5.6 * 2.2   =  2.6 ( 2.2 + AP)      simplify

 

12.32  =  5.72  +  2.6 AP

 

(12.32  - 5.72) / 2.6   =   AP   =  33/13  m ≈  2.538  m

 

cool cool cool
