Textbook Problem

In a gambrel style roof, the gable end of a barn has the shape of an isosceles trapezoid surmounted by an isosceles triangle. If AE=30 ft and BD=24 ft, find: (a) AS (b) VD (c) CD (d) DE To determine

(a)

To Find:

AS

Explanation

Consider the following diagram.

From the given diagram, we know that BSAEandDTAE.

Therefore, BD=ST.

It is given that BD=24ft.

Then, ST=24ft.

Since, ABDE is an isosceles trapezoid ΔABSΔEDT.

Then, AS=TE

To determine

(b)

To Find:

VD

To determine

(c)

To Find:

CD

To determine

(d)

To Find:

DE
