In the diagram below, WXYZ is a trapezoid such that WX||ZY and WY(that upside down T thingy)ZY. If YZ=12, tan Z=1.5, and tan X=2, then what is XY?

 

I couldn't find a link to the image.

In the diagram below, WXYZ is a trapezoid such that WX||ZY and WY ⊥ ZY. If YZ=12, tan Z=1.5, and tan X=2, then what is XY?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

WY = tanZ * 12 = 18

 

WX = 18 / tanX = 9

 

XY = sqrt(WX2 + WY2)
