Find DF if:a) D E = 12 and E F = 5 b) D F = 12 and E F = 6 . Exercises 7-10

To determine

(a)

To Find:

The length of DF¯.

Explanation

Given DE=12 and EF= 5,

And figure,

From the figure,

ΔDEF is a right triangle with right angle E

From the Pythagorean Theorem,

The square of the length of hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the square of the lengths of the other two sides.

From the figure, DF¯ is the hypotenuse,

DF2=E<

To determine
