For ΔJNM, the following facts are given:

KL || MN

KL = 8 ft

MN = 10 ft

JL = 3.2 ft

MK = 1.5 ft

Yes S-A - S

Find the length of JN. Show all your work.

kl is to mn as jl is to jn

kl / mn = jl/jn

8/10 = 3.2 / jn use this to find jn then ln = jn - jl = jn - 3.2

Find the length of JK. Show all your work.

kl / mn = jk/ (jk+ mk)

8/10 = jk/ (jk+1.5) solve for jk

Are these right triangles? use what you have found and are given to see if pythagorean theorem is true

if they ARE right triangles then are of a right triangle = 1/2 leg_{1 }* leg_{2 }
