Textbook Problem

In △ X Y Z , X Z - ≅ Y Z - and ∠ Z is a right angle.a) Find XY if XZ=10 in.b) Find XZ if X Y = 8 2 cm. To determine

a)

To find:

The value of XY.

Explanation

Given, In XYZ,

XZ¯YZ¯, therefore XZ¯=YZ¯

Z is a right angle.

XZ=10in.  and YZ=10in.

We have to find the hypotenuse XY.

By Pythagorean Theorem,

The square of the length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the length of the legs

To determine

b)

To find:

The value of XZ.
