If UV is 4 and UT is 6.25, what is UW? Round to the nearest thousandth.

Note  that  triangle  UVW  is similar to triangle UWT

 

Therefore

 

UV  / UW  =  UW / UT

 

4/ UW  = UW   /  6.25

 

So

 

UT * UV  =  UW * UW 

 

6.25 * 4  =  UW^2

 

25 =  UW^2     take  the positive root

 

5  = UW
