In the diagram of rectangle ABCD, diagonal AC is drawn, DE = 8, DE is perpendicular to AC, and m∠DAC = 55.

To the nearest integer, the area of rectangle ABCD = how many square units.

In the diagram of rectangle ABCD, diagonal AC is drawn, DE = 8, DE is perpendicular to AC, and m∠DAC = 55.

To the nearest integer, the area of rectangle ABCD = how many square units.

 

sin (55)  =  DE / AD

AD  =  DE / sin (55)

AD  =  8 / sin (55)

And  

tan (55) = DC / AD

tan (55)  = DC / [8 / sin (55) ]

DC  =  8 tan (55) / sin (55)   

 

So...... the area of  ABCD  =

AD * DC  =

[8 /sin (55) ]  [ 8 tan (55) / sin (55) ]   ≈    136 units^2  

 

Here's a pic of 1/2 of the rectangle
