Note that we have similar triangles, such that :

 

BDA ≈ BAC   ....so....

 

BA/DA  = BC/AC

 

And BC  = sqrt(10^2 + 20^2)  = sqrt(500)  = 10sqrt(5)    .......so....

 

10/DA  = 10sqrt(5) /20

 

10/DA  = sqrt(5) / 2    cross-multiply

 

20 = sqrt(5) * DA

 

DA = 20/sqrt(5)  = 20sqrt(5)  / 5   = 4sqrt(5)  →  (C)

 

 

 

 

cool cool cool
