1. In the trapezoid shown, the ratio of the area of triangle ABC to the area of triangle ADC is 7:3. If AB+CD=210 cm, how long is segment \(\overline{AB}\)

2. Triangle PAB is formed by three tangents to circle O and \(\angle APB = 40^\circ\). Find \(\angle AOB \).

3. In the circle with center Q, radii AQ and BQ form a right angle. The two smaller regions are tangent semicircles, as shown. The radius of the circle with center Q is 14 inches. What is the radius of the smaller semicircle? Express your answer as a common fraction.

Triangles ABC and ADC  are under the same altitudes....so.....their bases are to each other as their areas...

 

So.....the base length of  ABC   is (7/10)  of  210 cm   =   147 cm  =  AB

 

 

cool cool cool
