For exercises 36 and 37, E F ¯ is the median of trapezoid ABCD in the figure above.Suppose that E M = 7.1             a n d             M F = 3.5 Find: (a) AB (b) EF (c) DC (d) Whether E F = 1 2 ( A B + D C ) Exercises 35-37

To determine

(a)

To Find:

AB

Explanation

Consider the following diagram.

Given: EM = 7.1 and MF = 3.5.

Consider the triangle ΔABC.

We know that the line segment that joins the midpoints of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and has a length equal to one half the length of the third side.

Here, the line segment MF joins the midpoints of AC¯
