Textbook Problem

Given point D in the interior of Δ R S T , suppose that R G = 3 , G S = 4 , S H = 4 , H T = 5 , and T K = 3. Find K R . To determine

To find:

The value of KR.

Explanation

Given:

Consider a point D in the interior of ΔRST and RG=3,GS=4,SH=4,HT=5,TK=3.

Theorem used:

Ceva’s theorem:

Let point D be any point in the interior of ΔABC, where E, F, and G lie on ΔABC, let BE¯,AF¯ and CG¯ be the line segments determined by D and vertices of ΔABC. Then the product of the ratios of the lengths of the segments of each of the three sides (taken in order from a given vertex of the triangle) equals 1; that is AGGBBFFCCEEA=1.

Calculation:

Let D be a point in the interior of ΔRST
