Textbook Problem

Given: l 1 ∥ l 2 ∥ l 3 ∥ l 4 , A B = 7 , B C = 5 , C D = 4 , E F = 6 Find: F G , G H , E H To determine

To find:

FG,GH,EH.

Explanation

Given:

l1l2l3l4 and AB=7,BC=5,CD=4,EF=6.

Theorem used:

When three (or more) parallel lines are cut by a pair of transversals, the transversals are divided proportionally by the parallel lines.

Calculation:

Given: l1l2l3l4

Since when three (or more) parallel lines are cut by a pair of transversals, the transversals are divided proportionally by the parallel lines.

ABEF=BCFG=CDGH

Also given that AB=7,BC=5,CD=4,EF=6.

Thus 76=5FG=4GH.

Consider 76=5FG

FG=567=307=427

Now consider 76=4GH
