In Exercises 17 and 18, consider with V X - ⊥ R S - and V Y - ⊥ S T - .a) Which line segment isthe altitude of with respect to base R S - ?b) Which number is theheight of with respect to base R S - ?

To determine

a.

To find:

The line segment which is the altitude of RSTV respect to the base RS¯.

Explanation

Given:

Consider RSTV with VX¯RS¯ and VY¯ST¯ and the diagram as shown below.

Definition:

An altitude of a parallelogram is any line segment drawn from one side so that it is perpendicular to the nonadjacent side or to an extension of that side.

In the RSTV, given that VX¯RS¯ and VY¯ST¯

To determine

b.

To find:

The height of RSTV with to the base RS¯.
