# In Exercises 23 to 28, find the equation (realtionship) requested. Then eliminate fractions and square root radicals from the equation.Suppose that △ R S T is an isosceles triangle, with R S - ≅ R T - . State an equation that relates s ,   t , and v . To determine

To state:

An equation that relates s, t, and v for the given figure.

Explanation

The given figure is shown below.

It is given that RS-RT-.

To find RS, we have to use the distance formula.

x1,y1=R0, 0

x2,y2=Ss, 0

Formula for distance between two points

d=x2-x12+y2-y12

Substituting the x and y co-ordinates

dRS=s-02+0-02

On solving this,

dRS=s2+02

dRS=s2

To find RT, we have to use the distance formula
