Textbook Problem

Given: E F ↔ | | G O ↔ | | H M ↔ | | J K ↔ | | , with     transversals     F J ↔     and     E K ↔ ; F G = 2 , G H = 8 , H J = 5 , E M = 6 Find EO, EK To determine

To find:

EO, EK

Explanation

Given:

EF||GO||HM||JK||FG=2,GH=8,HJ=5,EM=6

Then,

Calculation:

Using, “When two or more parallel lines are cut by a pair of transversal, the transversals are divided proportionally by the parallel lines”.

So,

FGEO=FHEM2EO=2+862EO=106

Cross multiplying, we get

2EO=106(EO)⋅</
