Solve Exercise 43 when |CD| = 2 cm.

43. In ΔABC, D lies on AB, CDAB, |AD| = |BD| = 4 cm, and |CD| = 5 cm. Where should a point P be chosen on CD so that the sum |PA| + |PB| + |PC| is a minimum?

To determine

To find: The position of the point P so that the sum |PA|+|PB|+|PC| is minimized.

Explanation of Solution

Given:

The given lengths are |CD|=2cm, |BD|=|AD|=4cm, CD is perpendicular to AB and D lies on AB.

Calculation:

Draw the figure showing the arrangement given as shown below in Figure 1.

Note that CD is a perpendicular to AB .

Let PD=x where 0x2.

To maximize the distance |PA|+|PB|+|PC|.

Use Pythagoras theorem and determine |PA|=|PB|=16+x2.

Consider,

f(x)=|PA|+|PB|+|PC|=216+x2+(2x)

Differentiate f with respect to x,

f(x)=2x16+x21=2x16+x216+x2

Equate first derivative to 0
